Domestic Abuse Education Team
Who are we?
The Hampton Trust DARE Team’s (Domestic Abuse Relationship Education) primary aim is to raise awareness of domestic abuse & healthy relationships amongst young people in the Guernsey and Alderney communities.
What we do:
The Schools Education Worker provides consistent and structured domestic abuse educational lessons to all year 7, 9 & 11 PSHE classes in all schools. Sessions are also provided in the post-16 setting where lessons are customised for groups.
The Community Education Worker provides semi-structured and tailor-made domestic abuse workshops in other youth settings.
These 2 roles were developed as part of the Domestic Abuse Strategy for Guernsey and Alderney, which was approved by the States in September 2009 with funding commencing in 2011. The strategy seeks to tackle domestic abuse through a four-pronged approach that ensures:
- There is good partnership working between all agencies involved in tackling abuse
- Effective services are provided to protect victims and their children
- A robust criminal justice response is provided
- Primary prevention in the form of education and awareness-raising is put in place to change attitudes and behaviour
