About Umbrella

In August 2015 Birmingham City Council (BCC) and Solihull Metropolitan Borough

Council (SMBC) commissioned Umbrella to provide a new, unique, outcomes-based sexual health service that would enable greater access to sexual health services for all Birmingham and Solihull residents.

Umbrella seeks to achieve this greater access through an innovative combination of training, education, health promotion and partnership working, building the most integrated sexual health service for all of its service users.

The Umbrella model has completely redesigned the traditional sexual health service.

Prior to Umbrella, sexual health service models had been fragmented, treatment-based and predominantly delivered in specialist clinical centres. Umbrella has transformed the model into a prevention-based, community-focused service with education, empowerment and self-care at its core.

The success of the Umbrella service is measured in terms of its performance in supporting 10 sexual health priority outcomes around which our social media, marketing and promotional activities are centred:

  1. Reducing under-18 conceptions
  2. Increasing chlamydia diagnoses in the 15–24 age group
  3. Reducing the late diagnosis of HIV
  4. Improving support for people vulnerable to, and victims of, sexual coercion, sexual violence and exploitation
  5. Providing better access to services for high risk communities
  6. Ensuring prompt access for earlier diagnosis and treatment
  7. Increasing the use of effective good quality contraception
  8. Reducing the number of people repeatedly treated for STIs
  9. Reducing the number of abortions; repeat abortions under the age of 25
  10. Reducing the transmission of HIV, STIs and blood borne viruses (BBV)
