Brook will deliver a completely level 2 sexual health and targeted outreach clinic to vulnerable young people. They will subcontract to social care and health charity Change Grow Live (CGL) to provide substance misuse expertise and provision. However, the service will be fully integrated, with all staff trained to deliver advice and information around both sexual health and substance misuse.
