Rape Crisis centres in Scotland are engaging with young people in schools and youth groups around the country to talk about issues such as consent, gender, social media and sexualisation.

Rape Crisis centres in Scotland are engaging with young people in schools and youth groups around the country to talk about issues such as consent, gender, social media and sexualisation.
Nine of the centres are working together as part of a national project funded by the Scottish Government's Third Sector Early Intervention Fund using a sexual violence prevention resource pack developed by Rape Crisis Scotland.
The pack and its delivery are being externally evaluated, and data collected from the first six months of the project indicate that the resources and the approach of the prevention workers are well-received by young people, and that there has been significant impact in terms of knowledge and attitudes.
Prevention workers are also engaging with young people in their localities to find out what's important to them, and to increase their engagement with issues around sexual violence prevention and gender based violence.
