We are currently transitioning from a CIC (Community Interest Company) to a CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation). Over the coming weeks and months, we will be connecting with existing sexual health and disability groups local to Poole, Dorset. This will be on a voluntary basis. Up to date information on progress will be via Facebook and Twitter.

We exhibited at Naidex National 2015 at the end of April, and were received with open arms by all who attended and spoke with us. It was our first time taking a stand at an exhibition and after some nerves, we were inundated with requests and support. We thank all those that came and spoke to us and also those that have provided us with contact details.
Our newsletter went out to all those that requested it.
Link to our newsletter will be posted here soon.
Our very first Blog post has now gone live, various subjects will follow fortnightly. Follow us on Social Media for Updates as they go out.
