In support of the Violence against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (Wales) Act 2015, Welsh Government has supported a project to produce Wales’ first national good practice guide for young people on how they can safely and creatively promote gender equalities to address gender-based and sexual violence in their schools and communities. The guidance will be co-produced with a young people’s advisory group and in collaboration with the NSPCC Cymru/Wales, the Office of the Children’s Commissioner for Wales, Cardiff University, and Welsh Women’s Aid (October 2015 – April 2016).

To inform this guidance, Welsh Women’s Aid is gathering examples of when individual or groups of children and young people have organized themselves to raise awareness of an issue related to healthy relationships and gender-based violence, domestic abuse and sexual violence, including the promotion of gender equalities.

The examples you share with us below will help inform the young people’s good practice guide above and, with your permission, maybe used as case study exemplars.

We would like to hear from you:

·        If you work with young people

·        If you know of, or have supported young people in raising awareness of gender and sexual violence in their school and/or communities

We would be grateful if you could please take a moment to answer the questions below. We are especially interested to collect examples that are young people initiated and young people led. Please do complete the sections below with young people if this is possible.

This consultation will close on the 13th of November 2015.
