Life Connections Ireland
Life Connections Ireland
Life Connections believe that children and teenagers need education and support, so that they can learn to love in healthy ways and how to express themselves clearly, whether they are with friends, in the family, in romantic relationships or in work and team relationships as they grow up.
And because children and teenagers live and learn within families, we equally believe that parents and guardians need support, so that they can continue to have these important conversations in the home or family environment.
Relationship Education skills are life long skills, let's invest in this social-emotional education now, to prepare our children for healthy relationships in adulthood.
Opening healthy conversations during childhood, prepares the way for healthy relationships in adulthood.
Since beginning the delivery of our programmes in April 2019, we have created impact in the lives of families across Ireland. And in 2021 this impact will increase as we begin to offer online Relationships and Sexuality Education (RSE) courses and programmes for children in Irish primary schools, and online Social Personal Health Education (SPHE) courses for junior and senior cycle students in Irish secondary schools.
Creating impact in the lives of 550 families since the e-learning course THRIVING TOGETHER for Parents & Guardians of 10-12 year old children opened in October 2020.
Creating impact in the lives of 580 teenagers who have participated in the Healthy Relationships Programmes in 2019 and 2020. In Autumn 2021 this impact will soar as we launch e-learning modules
Creating impact in the lives of 300 primary school children since our THRIVING TWEENS programme launched in April 2021.
Communication, people and education and training have been central in Jenny's working life these past twenty years. In late 2018 she founded Life Connections, with a vision of creating a society where children, young people and adults can talk about and be in healthy relationships.
E-learning courses are a great way to learn the skills you need to talk to your children about relationships and sexuality now. From the comfort of your own home, you can navigate your learning at your own pace. There are also live webinars for course participants and the possibility to join an online community.
21st Century parenting requires us to nurture our children's emotional intelligence, so our children will grow into healthy, assertive, articulate, empathic adults.
Relationship education is key to developing this in our children. You as the parent/guardian are central to this education. It is in relationships that we learn so much about being ourselves and being with others.

Supporting schools in the delivery of their SPHE & RSE curriculum, we educate and host conversations with young people on the topics of friendships, relationships, intimacy, consent, safety, boundaries, body awareness, feelings, communication skills and critical thinking.
This is preventative work, to enable young people to make healthy supportive choices for themselves as they move forward from the teenage stage to young adulthood.
“It was very informative and clear.”
“Jenny delivered the programme in a very professional manner, where the students were continuously engaged in activities and dialogue. She had an exceptional rapport with all our students and provided well thought out positive feedback to management in the school”
“32 learners, Male & female and a number from different ethnic background, were involved in the programme. Jenny engaged the learners with several techniques, to keep it informative and interesting. This can be a challenge with 16-21-year olds. The learners were engaged in a topic, that can be difficult and sensitive. The tools/tips that the learners took away with them were invaluable. An excellent, professional facilitator and a joy to work with it”
