The Youth Relationships Award

Winner: Peer Productions - Generation Girls (drama programme)

Generation Girls is an empowerment programme for girls with learning disabilities attending SEN schools. The 10-week programme uses a mix of drama and peer-led education to explore the issues that matter to young women and aims to create a safe space where girls can express themselves. The aim is to support young women to better understand their bodies, learn about boundaries and healthy relationships, and improve their confidence, as well as to identify warning signs of abuse and manipulation.
