Education and public awareness

Working with schools, youth groups, local communities and even football clubs, we believe everyone can play a role in ending domestic abuse.

Expect Respect Healthy Relationships Toolkit

Women’s Aid is working in partnership with Yves Saint Laurent Beauty to educate children and young people about intimate partner violence (IPV), with its commitment of reaching the global goal to educate 2 million people by 2030 through the Abuse is Not Love campaign.

The Expect Respect Healthy Relationship Toolkit produced by Women’s Aid is a prevention toolkit to hold conversations on the root causes that lead to violence, as well as educating children and young people on gender-based violence. Designed for schools, it is also freely available to download and can be used by professionals working with children and young people.
