The LEAP project: Life skills, leadership, limitless potential: Supporting children and young people affected by sexual violence in Europe by strengthening and facilitating participatory practice
What is the project about ??
The aim of this project is to promote participatory practice with children and young people affected by sexual violence. The project is being delivered by 5 international partners across Europe. We want to strengthen and improve child-centred, rights-based responses for child victims of violence. Our work will involve practitioners who work with young people and children and young people in the UK, The Netherlands, Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary.
We are developing a training programme that offers the knowledge and skills which practitioner’s need to develop participatory work in their own organisations. We hope tthis will build capacity to protect and meet victim’s needs through participatory approaches.
We are also developing a life skills and leadership toolkit for young people affected by sexual violence, this will be delivered by young people themselves to protect other children and young people and challenge negative attitudes towards victims. This work will ensure children and young people are listened to and recognized as experts in their own lives and their peers.
The progress of the project and materials we develop will be shared internationally via newsletters, webinars and events. If you would like to receive information about these updates please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
