Travellers’ Attitudes to Sexual Relationships and Sex Education

Research output: Book/ReportOther output

Abstract

Pavee Point has been concerned for many years about the lack of knowledge among young Travellers about sex education. Most young people get their information about sexual relationships and sex education from school or parents. In Pavee Point we recognise that many Traveller parents often do not feel equipped to discuss these issues with their children. Traditionally it has been a taboo subject among Travellers, although this is changing. The fact that the majority of young Travellers are early school leavers also means that many of them do not have the opportunity of informing themselves in the formal education system.
