NICE recommends the provision of culturally appropriate, confidential, non-judgemental, empathic advice and, if possible, provision of the full range of contraceptive methods (including LARC), condoms and emergency contraception. If this is not possible, services should provide contraception to meet immediate needs and signpost to services that can offer timely provision of the full range of methods. 2 Additional support should also be provided for socially disadvantaged young people, including access to trained interpreters, one-to-one sessions and special facilities for those with disabilities.
