Since 2003, Tender has educated over 500,000 young people about healthy relationships through creative programmes.
We have three core aims:
Our interactive projects support those aged 8 – 25 years to explore their rights, choices and responsibilities in relationships, and to recognise the early warning signs of domestic abuse and sexual violence.
The rates of domestic abuse in the UK remain consistently high, with young people aged 16 – 25 at the greatest risk of experiencing it both as victims and as perpetrators. Tender’s mission is to prevent abuse – to stop it before it starts: preventing young people from becoming victims or perpetrators and empowering them to build healthy relationships based on equality and respect.
Tender has worked with a range of independent evaluators including DMSS Research, Middlesex University and Project Oracle to develop robust processes for measuring the success of our educational, preventative work.
