Sinn Féin’s Equality Spokesperson, Megan Fearon MLA, has said that relationship and sexuality education must be reformed to ensure it is effective and relevant.

The Newry and Armagh MLA was speaking following an event organised by the Family Planning Association to launch sexual health awareness week.



Megan Fearon said, “Relationship and sexuality education must be reformed to ensure that information given to young people is effective in encouraging healthy and consensual relationships.

“A stigma exists in our society, not only around discussing safe and healthy relationships, but also about the issues concerning LGBTQ citizens and those with disabilities.



“Relationship and sexuality education must be reviewed and standardised for all young people.

She added, “It must be focused on creating an environment of openness, safety and consent.”
