Around 1 in 5 British children have been exposed to domestic abuse and 75% of girls over 12 have reported relationship abuse. S.W.I.M’s healthy relationship workshops educate and empower young people to take responsibility for their well-being by making positive relationship choices. They sensitively tackle Domestic Abuse and relationships using a combination of interactive workshops, debates and conferences based on instilling self-esteem. Later in life, children exposed to domestic abuse are at greater risk for substance abuse, juvenile pregnancy and gang and knife violence. Due to this link, S.W.I.M recently hosted ‘21 Questions: Youth Violence, Trauma and Hope’ at The Houses of Parliament as an emergency response to the youth violence crisis. Recently, they announced S.W.I.M’s inclusion Publisher St. James’s official commemorative album for the Vote100 anniversary as a representative of the domestic abuse charity sector.
