The Sexual Health & Crisis Pregnancy Programme administers funding to services and projects that support its aims, such as youthwork, counselling and healthcare services. In 2012 the Programme allocated €4.9million to 60 projects. Services funded help to prevent crisis pregnancy and support women, their partners and their families when they experience crisis pregnancy.

Services funded fall into three main areas:

  1. Services and projects offering crisis pregnancy prevention and sexual-health education and support, primarily to young people aged 11-24
  2. Services offering crisis pregnancy counselling and support services
  3. Services that offer support during and after crisis pregnancy, such as parenting initiatives and post termination check-ups and counselling
