Abstract: This first report from the programme of research, ‘Report No. 1: A Survey of Service-provider Perspectives’ presents findings gathered by way of electronic survey (e-survey), which was circulated to those working with young people in care. The purpose of this approach was to gather information with as broad a range of service providers as possible to get a clear picture of needs from their particular perspective. The findings point to the broader psychosocial issues linked to the lives of many young people in care and how these are inextricably linked to sexual health and sex education needs. The results also identify a number of barriers faced by service providers in providing sexual health education and information and those working with young people in care.
