Expect Respect- Tools for healthy relationships

Presented by Amna Abdullatif
Children and Young People’s Officer
Women’s Aid

Schools are not often thought about as places where domestic violence can be discussed, yet children and young people who have lived with violence, or are living with it, want to talk about it and make sense of their experiences.

Amna led the Safer Futures project at Women’s Aid in the U.K, which aims to promote and support the education of young people about domestic violence and healthy relationships. Safer Future introduces the Expect Respect toolkit for schools and teachers to enable them to talk about domestic violence with students.

Join us in Wellington on the 15 October featuring Amna Abdullatif, a local politician in the U.K., a campaigner and activist for women’s rights with interest in foreign policy and its impact on women, specifically the Middle East and North Africa. Amna currently runs trainings to support specialists working with pregnant women and children impacted by domestic abuse. She is a community psychologist who has worked with communities, children and women for over 14 years.
