Consent Ed Project

The Consent Ed Project is a sexual violence prevention programme for young people in Ireland. The programme of learning has been designed to empower young people through education that raises awareness and promotes prevention initiatives across the spectrum of sexual violence. By enhancing knowledge and fostering healthy conversations between young people and adults around the nuances of sexual violence, the project seeks to reduce the acceptance and prevalence of all forms of violence nationwide. Consent Ed’s SPHE aligned resources are aimed at junior and senior cycle students in schools, and traveller young people in the community. This initiative offers a comprehensive range of teaching materials and capacity building training for educators.  

Consent Ed comes from strategic partnerships with TUSLA, Galway Rape Crisis, and Pavee Point Traveller and Roma Centre, made possible by generous funding from the European Union and the Department of Justice;

What the Project Entails: 


Topics covered include: boundaries, distinguishing healthy versus unhealthy relationships, the essence of consent, fostering healthy sexual behaviours, addressing online sexual harm, and recognising the signs of sexual violence and exploitation.

Teacher Training: Educators play a pivotal role in shaping students’ understanding of consent and preventing sexual violence. Through comprehensive training, we equip educators and youth workers with the necessary tools, knowledge, and resources to create a safe learning environment in which to meaningfully engage young people and facilitate sensitive discussions.
