Support

Below are a range of charities, organisations and educational resources which help parents/carers, education staff and young people learn more about the law surrounding relationships and sex and support if it is ever needed. 

Independent domestic violence advocates (IDVAs) and independent sexual violence advocates (ISVAs) offer free support to victims of domestic or sexual crime. They are worth their weight in gold and not only assist victims throughout court proceedings but can assist with counselling referrals or housing issues. IDVA/ISVAs work alongside police but are not police officers and are based all across the UK. To find your nearest, click the button below.

Supporting young people as they begin to enter relationships can be tough, especially when trying to combat harmful behaviours learnt from porn and social media.

Parent/carers

Raising a child can have its challenges, particularly when they begin to enter relationships, use social media and spend more time out of the house.

 

Whilst you can never fully protect them from all harm, you can ensure they are fully educated on the laws surrounding relationships and sex and what to do if something does happen. Far too many young people are victims of criminal offences and either aren't aware or don't know what to do. 

If you or your child have been assaulted or harassed and are in danger, call 999. If you don't want to call the police but are concerned about somebody's behaviour towards you or a loved one, here are a range of websites with lots of information about your rights and laws there to protect you.
