A sexual health charity is inviting residents to learn more about its services after moving to offices in Ilford.

The Terrence Higgins Trust, which is the largest HIV and sexual health charity in Europe, has now moved to Olympic House, in Clements Road, Ilford.

Fazal Mahmood, the condom distribution officer for the charity, said the team were delighted to be in Redbridge.

He said: “Most of our work is in this borough now, so we thought it made sense to have our offices here!

“We operate a range of services for Redbridge residents including drop-in clinics to access HIV tests.

“These are especially important for men who have sex with men and the black African community, who live in the borough.

“We also have a C-card scheme for free condoms for residents between 13 and 24 years old.”
