Connect & Respect
Safenet and our delivery partners are currently delivering our Healthy Relationships programme ‘Connect & Respect’ to Secondary schools across Lancashire. These sessions are delivered by our domestic abuse specialists and partner agencies.
The programme focusses on evidence based interventions that will challenge the myths around domestic abuse, support children and young people to seek help and safety and to model and promote, healthy, non-violent relationships.
There is also access to a live chat which is available for pupils and school staff to access outside of school hours, where they can get specialist domestic abuse advice, guidance and support.
