Below is some info about Kerry and the team

Kerry leads the Targeted Outreach Team at the Somerset Sexual Health services (SWISH), ensuring nobody suffers sexual health inequalities. She works hard to implement this, especially with the most vulnerable in this rural county, where geographical challenges make access to sexual healthcare difficult for many.

Throughout Covid-19, Kerry has successfully targeted a network of services and developed “pop up” clinics within the community. This has created rapid sexual health care access for rough sleepers, sex workers, sexual assault survivors, travellers and young people subjected to sexual exploitation and county lines. Her team has worked hard supporting the PAUSE project, aiding vulnerable women with experiences of multiple children removed from their care. They visit young LGBTQ+ people from local support group 2BU, removing barriers to healthcare. The team are proud to champion positive and inclusive sexual health, until it is viewed with the same importance as any other aspect of healthcare.
