Tender offers a distinctly different approach to addressing violence prevention within intimate teenage relationships. Drama allows participants to experience what it feels like to be in ‘someone else’s shoes’ which increases empathy and understanding and creates a platform where participants engage emotionally as well as intellectually. Schools value arts-education; particularly in raising levels of self-esteem and developing team building and communication skills.
We believe the information we have about young people’s experiences of violence, and the impact of the Tender Programme, will increase the volume of our voice to share at a government and policy level.
In order to reach more young people partnership working is the way forward.
With around 3500 secondary schools across the UK we can’t do it alone.
Tender is extremely proud of the national delivery that is taking place through the Tender Healthy Relationships Programme by all of our partners.
Please see below for a list of all partners we have worked with so far across the country.
