Survey regarding contraception from Advisory Group of Contraception – closes 13 November 2023

13th October 2023

The Advisory Group of Contraception (AGC) – an coalition of leading clinicians, commissioners and advocacy groups, has recently launched a national survey on access to contraception.

Between 2015/16 and 2020/21, there was a stark 42% real terms reduction in contraceptive spend across England leading to significant difficulties in access contraception as well as unprecedented levels of demand for abortion services. In the Government’s own public call for evidence, just 40% of women reported being able to conveniently access the services they need in terms of location, with only 24% reporting convenient timing of access, especially in relation to contraception.

They are happy to hear from all women but particularly want to hear from marginalised groups as there is little research into the barriers these women might experience – paper copies of this survey are available or you can complete the Online survey about contraception.
