Covering Violence Against Women and Girls in Sex and Relationships Education
Thank you for taking the time to complete this short survey. Youth For Change UK has been working on tackling the issue of Gender Based Violence, with a particular focus on traditional harmful practices such as Female Genital Mutilation ( FGM) and Forced marriage since 2014.
Our current focus is ensuring that both school staff and children and young people are informed and trained on the issues of FGM and Forced Marriage, with the ultimate aim of keeping children and young people safe.
With the new mandatory Sex and Relationships Education coming into play from 2019 - we think its important that the guidance for school staff provides information on how to cover the issues of Violence Against Women and Girls. It is essential that teachers and members of school staff are consulted on this and we would love to hear your views to allow us to represent you in our work going forward.
