This is Abuse - Teenage Relationship Abuse Campaign Launched

The Teenage Relationship Abuse Campaign, launched by the UK Home Office on 1 September 2011 aims to prevent teenagers from becoming victims and perpetrators of abusive relationships. The campaign encourages teenagers to re-think their views of acceptable violence, abuse or controlling behaviour in relationships and directs them to places for help and advice. The This is abuse website gives teens the chance to discuss the issues with their peers and get access to third party support and advice. The site is also running online discussion forums during the campaign with the support of our partners such as Against Violence and Abuse, Women’s Aid, Respect – men's advice line and Broken Rainbow.
For more information or to download and order campaign materials visit the Teenage Relationship Abuse website.
The campaign is supported by a video advertising campaign. The teenage relationship abuse campaign originally ran in February and March 2010 and is presently re-running on youth TV stations, in cinemas, on posters in schools, shopping and leisure centres and online. You can view the videos on the This is Abuse website or here via YouTube.
