About YPF

Young People Friendly (YPF) is a local sexual health brand covering Redbridge, Barking and Dagenham and Havering.

YPF was created to make sexual health services easier for young people to find and use. It also aims to make services friendlier towards young people. If a service is YPF accredited and displays the YPF logo in the window or door it means that the place has been checked by us and young people and the staff have been trained to make sure the service they give you is:

  • Youth friendly & Accessible
  • Professional & Non-judgemental
  • Free & confidential

YPF is completely confidential and you can walk in to any site displaying the YPF logo in the window. They won't tell anybody that you have used the service even if you are under 16. Some YPF sites have posters displayed which explain how confidentiality works there.  If you are worried, you can ask the person serving you what will happen about any conversations you have with them or information you may give them. 

You don't have to be having sex to access sexual health services from a YPF accredited site - you might just be curious and want to try it out for yourself. It is better to know where to get free condoms and information before you really need it or it is too late!

Look out for the YPF logo on the local services map or on the door or window of an accredited site, such as a pharmacy or youth provision, as you walk down the street!
