This project is based on the need identified by Youth Work Ireland through a consultation with young people in the Spring of 2018. Recent studies (NUIG Sexual Experiences Survey) show that further support and guidance is needed for the young people of Ireland. This programme aims to provide young people with better information on consent, relationships and to explore their ideal self.
