Our mission is to promote positive contraception experience in Scotland.  

We are a policy group campaigning for contraceptive empowerment in Scotland. We want to promote a prepared, informed and supported experience of contraception. CERT works to produce research-based change and a platform to champion the voices of others.

 

Our research centres around improving the experiences of current contraceptive users. We support the expansion of contraceptive options for everyone.

Our primary goals are:

  • A population informed about the full range of their contraceptive options and possible side effects

  • Greater support  in making and changing contraceptive choices

  • Contraception tailored to individual personal and medical needs

  • More contraceptive options for everyone 

  • Equal access to contraception
