The Barriers and Facilitators of Sexual Health and Wellbeing for Over 45s Who Face One or More Socioeconomic Disadvantage

This report summarises the findings from the second round of qualitative data collection, which took place via individual interviews and focus groups from September to December 2020 of the SHIFT (Sexual Health In the over ForTy-fives) Project. This will build insight into the needs, awareness and attitudes towards sexual health and wellbeing among socioeconomically disadvantaged adults over the age of 45 in the 2Seas region, further to the surveys which were distributed from November 2019 to April 2020.

SHIFT is part of the Interreg 2Seas Programme, receiving funding from the European Regional Development Fund. Running from 2019 to 2022, the project involves partners from across the “2Seas” region: UK, The Netherlands, and Belgium. The objective of SHIFT is to empower people aged over 45 to participate in sexual health services, and improve their sexual health and wellbeing. There is an additional focus on socioeconomically disadvantaged groups across the 2Seas region.
