We deliver a programme of preventative educational and advice work with young people, schools and key institutions.
This aspect of our work is not gender or race-specific. The purpose of this project is to raise awareness about violence against women and girls.
The teacher gave us a chance to give our opinion. She listened to what I had to say. That was good. Not a lot of people do that. My friend is having these problems at home and now I know that she can get help. It’s all cool.Service user account
We help young people understand and identify the key elements of healthy and unhealthy relationships, challenging myths and tolerance towards violence and identifying the early warning signs of abuse in relationships.
We are to help prevent abuse, engage in early intervention where cases are identified and, act as an advocate for young people when necessary.
Through this work, we aim to both challenge attitudes towards violence against women and girls and empower young people so they are able to seek support and advice if they are at risk.
We also work in partnership with Tender and other specialist providers to deliver this programme of education and prevention using a drama-based approach and covering a range of issues such as gender-based violence, forced marriage, honour-based violence, female genital mutilation.
