Each of the 4 partners have a proven track record of working with communities disproportionately affected by poor sexual health outcomes.

The Rise partners will be delivering a range of educational, group work, 1-2-1 and online activities accessible to our target population groups across the three boroughs.

Established in 1991 NAZ is the sexual health charity dedicated to people experiencing better sexual health. We do this because there’s a big gap in the sexual health outcomes of Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities compared to the general population. Everything we do works to reverse this trend.
