Abstract: This report presents findings gathered by way of in-depth interviews with 22 service-providers engaged in direct or indirect provision of Relationships and Sexuality Education (RSE) or sexual healthcare to young people in care. The findings build on Reports No. 1 and No. 2. The report sets out that while many service-providers support the provision of comprehensive RSE to young people in care, many report issues relating to the legal and policy situation that cross-cuts their work, creating uncertainty about how to approach both RSE and the delivery of sexual healthcare. Organisational legacy issues and a lack of workable and pragmatic guidelines were perceived to be key barriers.
