Relationships And Sexuality Education
What Is It?
Relate NI is working in conjunction with Nexus and The Rainbow Project on our Relationships and Sexuality Education (RSE) Programme. The RSE programme is an age-appropriate, sex-positive, LGBT+ inclusive programme for young people aged between 11 and 24.
We also have a seperate program for parents, youth workers and adults who work with young people.
Who can we work with?
The programme is fully funded by the Public Health Agency, which means it is entirely free for youth groups and further education colleges.
Information can be tailored to the needs of the specific group.
The Relate RSE programme will explore some of the following issues, depending on age:
Puberty, the development of sexual feelings & sexual orientation.
An introduction to the support services available in NI
How to have healthy relationships and spot unhealthy ones
Sexual health & STI’s
Contraception & how to have safer sex
What about Adults?
We are also offering free RSE workshops to parents and adults who work with young people, which gives them the skills and confidence to discuss relationships and other topics to young people including puberty, sexuality & gender identity.
Outcomes of this service
Our RSE Program will help build confidence, understanding, empathy and inclusion.
