Respect Education Resource

A comprehensive resource for teachers and youth workers on respect in relationships.

Almost a third of 16 - 18 year-old girls say they have been subjected to unwanted sexual touching at school1

42% of 16 - 18 year olds surveyed knew at least one girl who had been hit by her boyfriend2

Preventing violence against women begins with changing the attitudes and values we learn as we grow up. Children and young people are faced with a huge range of confusing messages about relationships, gender and violence; the Respect Education Packs were developed to provide teachers and youth workers with a comprehensive resource for exploring these messages and teaching respect in relationships, equality and non-violent ways of dealing with problems. Consistently popular since their development in 1998 and currently used in 21 local authorities, the packs are now being updated to include issues such as sexual exploitation, and will be made available online.

The Respect Education Resource pack has now been re-developed and is available online for free download here.
