We all need healthy relationships

That’s why we’re working to create a future where people feel confident, safe and respected in their relationships and never have to experience domestic abuse or sexual violence.

Our services

From schools to workplaces, our creative programmes give people the chance to explore healthy relationships, understand when behaviour is harmful, and play their part in preventing domestic abuse and sexual violence.

Our incredible patron

We are privileged to have Academy Award-winning actress Olivia Colman as our Patron. Since her role in Paddy Considine’s 2011 film Tyrannosaur in which she played a survivor of domestic abuse, Olivia has been dedicated to the cause. Olivia joined Tender in 2013 and has worked tirelessly to raise awareness of these issues.
