HEART - supported by BBC Children in Need
Delivered by Young Addaction Central Lancashire, HEART works with young people aged 12-18 who are at risk of or who have experienced abuse or violence in intimate relationships. With groups recruited from across Central Lancashire taking in referrals from schools, GPs, young people’s centres, Community Safety Partnerships and Youth probation teams, the project will help educate young people about developing healthy relationships that are free from exploitation and violence, and promote equality.
In group and 1:1 sessions, participants will be given the space to open up in a safe and confidential environment, giving them a crucial support network and allowing them to develop self-respect.
The project started delivery in January 2016. It’s funded for thee years and set to reach over a hundred teenagers in Lancashire.
