New beginning for SHQ (Sexual Health Quarters)

By : on : May 11, 2016 comments : (0)

We’ve rebranded! Once known as Family Planning WA, our new name positions us as the central point of contact for anything relating to sexual health, and represents our whole of community approach. SHQ’s specialised services cater for the diverse nature of sexuality, and moving forwards, we will have a strong focus on working with and supporting a range of disadvantaged groups.

Last year we undertook an extensive state-wide survey, which has allowed us to better understand the community’s sexual and reproductive health needs. The findings will be used to inform SHQ’s new direction, especially in regard to how we work with young people.

Some of our exciting new changes!

Our clinic in Northbridge is now open on Thursday evenings, and Saturday mornings, for confidential consultations around:

  • Contraception information and supply
