Young Person’s Worker
Manchester Women’s Aid believes everyone has the right
to safe and healthy relationships.
Funded by the Big Lottery and The Nationwide Foundation, our dedicated Youth Worker provides young people (13-25) with the tools and knowledge necessary to develop essential life skills and transition successfully into adulthood.
We know education is the key to preventing domestic and dating violence and are committed to developing partnerships with schools, colleges and other agencies.
Our workshops provide a fun and informative training package to raise awareness around domestic violence for schools, colleges and youth groups in the City of Manchester. We run holistic programmes for young people relating to all elements of their P.S.H.E education as part of curriculum and extra curriculum activities in conjunction with Brook and Healthy Schools.
The Project aims to:
- Provide free domestic violence awareness training for children, young people and professionals who work directly with children and young people.
- Challenge negative myths and stereotypes held around domestic violence, gender and culture.
- Provide information, skills and knowledge to allow children and young people to access support networks.
- Turn schools into safe environments where young people can report abuse.
What the project involves:
The training programme will cover a range of topics such as: healthy relationships; what is domestic violence; power and control; gender inequalities; conflict resolution; where to go for support.
