Tender, the UK charity supported by Olivia Colman as patron, responds to the news that sexual offences in schools have increased by 255% in four years as reported by Channel 4 News.
Using theatre and the arts, we engage young people in violence prevention workshops within their schools, enabling them to recognise and avoid abuse and violence. Our workshops can be adapted to many groups.
"Through games as well as intriguing activities, I have learnt statistics about abuse, types of abuse, how the victim feels, how abuse can affect the future of victims, how victims can be supported and charities that can help."
