Sexual Health Workshops

The Health Promotion team at the Sexual Health Centre has been delivering skills-based workshops to youth and community groups, parents and professionals in the Cork area since 1987. Our workshops are professional, accessible, comprehensive and focus on enabling positive sexual health for all. Our outreach workers focus on groups who, for a variety of reasons, can feel disconnected from society and often would not have access to sexual health information and services. These groups include but are not limited to young people, people living with a disability, the LGBTQ+ community, sex workers, people living or accessing addiction services, vulnerable adults and migrants.

We allow participants to discuss potentially difficult subjects in a safe environment and in a format that they feel most comfortable. 

“Every school and youth group needs these sessions.
I’m 37 and have never been tested for STIs. Due to these workshops, I will, as it is my right and my duty to ensure I’m clear and safe for future partners.”
