Partners to Pilot Young People’s Work

20 August 2008

Want to be involved in the development of targeted group / individual work on young people’s abuse in relationships?

RESPECT (The UK association for domestic violence perpetrator programmes and linked support services) has recently started a Young People’s Services Project with three years funding from Comic Relief and the DCSF Children and Young Peoples Fund.  The project will develop a toolkit for those working with the 13-19 year olds around their violence in relationships.

The project will run in three over-lapping phases:

  1. Development Phase – relevant research and practice synthesised to produce a service model and materials for work targeted at 13-19 year olds who are using violence and abuse in relationships.
  2. Pilot Phase – the above will then be piloted, evaluated and revised.
  3. Dissemination Phase – training for regions with the rollout of training package and toolkit and a national conference.

The Young People’s Services Development Project is currently seeking UK partners to pilot a toolkit for working with teenagers on their relationship violence and abuse between March 2009 and September 2010.  They now inviting projects to tender for this work.  They can contribute 75% of costs up to a maximum of £14,000 per pilot.
