Young People and Relationships
Relationships are great; they should be fun and exciting – especially if it’s your first. However, for some young people relationships can be the opposite of this and are abusive. We know that those aged 16 – 25 are more vulnerable when it comes to abusive relationships. The Teens and Young People - Act on it Now website is all about giving you information and advice so that you don’t find yourself in an unsafe relationship.
'Working Together to Safeguard Children' is government guidance to ensure organisations work well together to help you, here is a Young Person’s Guide to help explain what it may mean for you.
Further information is included in this section of the website on how to get help if you have any concerns.
