Presented by Amna Abdullatif
Children and Young People’s Officer
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.
