This academic year we have reached 2808 students with our Active Consent Workshops, last year we reached 712 so this is an increase of 294%.
The Active Consent Workshops aim to promote a positive approach to sexual health and to equip young people with the tools to recognise and communicate about sexual consent.
Thank you to the Midwest Rape Crisis Centre for their continued support and guidance. Thank you to the Active Consent team, thank you to the workshop facilitators Chelsea Joyce, Seán Ó Maoilchiaráin and Maureen Keogh and a massive thank you to all the students who engaged and participated in the workshops.
We must continue to educate ourselves and others around Consent, we must call out anti-social behaviour amongst our peers when it is safe to do so and we must actively show our support for victims of sexual violence. Please see the support services below.
