Women's Aid Education Toolkit - Expect Respect
The Expect Respect Educational Toolkit consists of one easy to use ‘Core’ lesson for each year group from reception to year 13 and is based on themes that have been found to be effective in tackling domestic abuse. Although the Expect Respect Education Toolkit is targeted for use by teachers within schools, it can just as easily be used by a range of other professionals working with children and young people in a variety of settings such as youth clubs or play schemes. You do not need to download the whole toolkit. You can just download the introductory section and the year that is appropriate to the age group you are working with.
We have also worked with the Home Office to produce Expect Respect: A Toolkit for addressing Teenage Relationship Abuse. This adapted version of the Toolkit is one strand of a campaign
launched by the Home Office, in February 2010, to challenge the attitudes of teenagers to violence and abuse in relationships. Visit the campaign website at http://thisisabuse.direct.gov.uk.
To help promote the use of the Expect Respect Education Toolkit in your school we have created this pdf poster.
