Young people

Violence in young people's intimate relationships is a child-welfare problem. Girls and young women reporting higher rates for all forms of violence and a greater level of negative impacts - you can read more about this here.

Young people too often see this violence as 'normal' and with the increased pressures facing young people, due to sexualised images, social media and more readily available pornography, there is a clear need for a prevention initiative to tackle this issue.

Our work in this area is split into two projects:

 

  1. Under Pressure, a training for trainers on abuse and sexual exploitation in young people’s relationships.
  2. Equally Safe at School, which aims to equip schools with the tools to challenge gender based violence and stereotypes, and promote equality
