WELCOME TO FAMILY PLANNING NSW
Family Planning NSW is the state’s leading provider of reproductive and sexual health services. We are experts on contraception, pregnancy options, STIs, sexuality and sexual function, menstruation, menopause, common gynaecological and vaginal problems, cervical screening, breast awareness and men’s health.
We have five fixed clinics in NSW (in Ashfield, Fairfield, Penrith, Newcastle and Dubbo) and use innovative partnerships to deliver services in other key locations across the state with more 28,000 client visits annually.
We also operate Talkline 1300 658 886, a confidential telephone and email information and referral service, connecting our expertise to communities across NSW.
We provide information and health promotion activities, as well as education and training for doctors, nurses, teachers and other health, education and welfare professionals.
As an independent, not-for-profit organisation, we recognise that every body in every family should have access to high quality clinical services and information.
Our services are targeted to marginalised communities, including people from culturally and linguistically diverse and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds, refugees, people with disability, young people, people from rural and remote communities and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex communities.
Our brand new Contraceptive Guide is an excellent resource for both teachers and clinicians to help facilitate sexuality and relationship education.
Our complete kit for hands-on teaching and learning about contraception has been redesigned and improved with up-to-date fact sheets and real examples of contraception methods.
Family Planning has developed a suite of Aboriginal specific resources for Aboriginal health workers, and other clinical, education and welfare professionals working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people.
FPNSW has an extensive Disability Resource Collection, available for loan to carers, service providers and organisations that provide services for people with a disability.
