Information, guidance and useful tools on education to prevent Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG).
This section of the website is full of information, guidance and useful tools for education professionals to develop and deliver a comprehensive programme to stop Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG). It has been written for education professionals to gain a greater understanding of how to deliver a comprehensive prevention programme in their organisation. The resources can also be adapted and used by anyone working with children and young people.
We have worked with schools, Pupil Referral Units (PRUs) and youth services across the UK to figure out what works in prevention education. What we know is documented in this section.
Please use the menu at the top to navigate through the different sections or use the buttons at the bottom of pages to follow the suggested route through the toolkit.
