Disrespect NoBody : New National Campaign

The Disrespect NoBody campaign is aimed at 12 to 18 year old boys and girls with the aim of preventing them from becoming perpetrators and victims of abusive relationships by encouraging young people to re-think their views of violence, abuse, controlling behaviour and what consent means within their relationships.

The campaign is supported by a dedicated website www.disrespectnobody.co.uk where young people can go to get further information on these issues. The website contains interactive polls, quizzes and young people can also read case studies about other young people who have experienced abuse and how they sought help.
