We have developed and evaluated a range of resources for use with children aged 3 to 18 plus vulnerable adults. The message that violence is preventable runs throughout the programmes. The programmes help young people, children and adults explore, in a fun and age appropriate manner, violence in all its forms including bullying, domestic abuse, sexual abuse, physical abuse and include work on gender issues, racism, sexism, sectarianism, homophobia, and other issues that might lead to violence in society.
