The Prevention Project
WRASAC Dundee and Angus now provide free, fun and interactive workshops for young people aged 11-25 years around preventing sexual violence.
Working from the Preventing Sexual Violence Resource Pack designed by Rape Crisis Scotland, the Sexual Violence Prevention Worker delivers the sessions in mainstream schools, off-site education, colleges and community groups.
We offer-age appropriate sessions on the following topics:
- What is Sexual Violence
- Social media
- How can we help prevent sexual violence?
- Impact of sexual violence and support needs
The pack itself has been devised to support and develop the education programs delivered by Rape Crisis Centres in Scotland, to increase young people’s access to high quality sexual violence prevention education linking in with:
- A Curriculum for Excellence
- Getting it Right for Every Child
- Equally Safe: Scotland's Strategy to prevent and eradicate violence against women and girls.
- Sexual Health and Blood Borne Virus Framework
- Scottish Government Single Outcomes
Here is some of the feedback we’ve received from young people who’s been involved in our workshops:
I love doing this, this is my favourite subject, I think it’s really important that we learn this stuff
Can we have some more of these workshops, I like doing this?
I didn’t know there were laws around this stuff (social media)
Some of the teachers and youth workers we’ve worked with had this to say:
This is a fantastic resource
What a brilliant resource, you can tell whoever designed this has had experience of working with young people
The kids were talking to me after the class and they were really positive about the workshops
Really informative and the young people seem to engage really well. The young people talk about the topics after the sessions.
