Youth Voices

We are young people who talk about the effects of good and abusive relationships. We are here to encourage your views and opinions. We want to gain knowledge about your experiences and for you to gain knowledge about this issue. Our aim is to be non-judgemental and to make suggestions for alternative ways of thinking and behaving. We need to all work together to make this happen.

We hope that you will feel comfortable to get involved in the development of this website as we would appreciate your comments.

To find out more about who we are click here http://stiritup.eu/project/uk-project/

Some of the things we have been doing include thinking about what relationships are, what good and bad relationships are and ways of describing these. We are looking at UK sources of help so we can add these to the help pages on this site and develop ways of getting this information to other young people in our areas.  We are also designing a poster that can be displayed in as many places as possible including schools. The slides at the top of this page show some of our work and we will add more images here soon.

StiritupUK Update April 2014

Over the last few weeks we have been considering whether there are different levels of abuse and as part of this whether some jealousy is OK and whether this too can be described as fitting into different levels. We have developed a ladder of jealousy and some ideas for an app. Please look at the discussions to give your thoughts about these too!

Web profile SRE controlling relationships

The piece of work we are doing is aimed at young people and bringing awareness to controlling relationships. We are trying to help young people recognise the signs & help them to speak out & deal with the problem by providing relevant websites & helplines should they need them. We want to help people escape from controlling partners. By creating posters & comic strips we are trying to do this in as simple way as possible so it’s in bite size pieces & easy it digest whilst still delivering a clear and very important message.

What do you think of these links?

There is information out there on intimate relationship abuse; but what do you think of it? Do these sites help people to identify abuse? Do they educate people about the abuse that can occur in relationships? Do they help you decide what to do if you are in an abusive relationship? Do they let you know where you can find more help? Which ones are most helpful?
