AVA will raise awareness about domestic and sexual violence with
around 400 young people across England and encourage them to be
advocates for their needs across social care and education. It is
one of 74 innovative initiatives sharing a total of £17.6m from
BIG's Reaching Communities programme this month.
AVA will also pilot therapeutic group work with young women who
have experienced or are at risk of violence and abuse in West Kent
and Doncaster, and focus on youth leadership development. Young
people will also have the opportunity to form youth panels to
educate their peers across the country, and use their experience to
inform and influence initiatives.
