Make Sex Education Inclusive For All

Young people have a right to inclusive, factual and holistic sex education

Sign our petition to change the Education Act of 1998 so that schools in Ireland must provide inclusive, factual and holistic sex education regardless of their religion or ethos.

Youth Work Ireland is working with young people to make sex education in Ireland more inclusive, factual and wholistic.

The curriculum is changing, but young people won’t be certain to receive reformed sex education unless the 1998 Education Act is changed. At present, schools can choose not to teach the curriculum on the basis of ethos.

Recommendations by the Oireachtas Committee on Relationships and Sexual Health and the NCCA Review of the RSE, echo what our young people say.
