An online campaign to raise awareness of teen relationship abuse has been launched by the Violence Reduction Unit (VRU) and Zero Tolerance.
The campaign features an animation based around the traditional he loves me, he loves me not flower game, with the falling of each petal highlighting potentially abusive behaviour.
The campaign is launched as Zero Tolerance and YWCA Scotland publish a report of a training pilot, Under Pressure: Preventing Teen Abuse and Exploitation which found youth workers across Scotland are seriously concerned about the prevalence of teen abuse. The report, which will be launched at the Scottish Parliament, found two thirds of youth workers were concerned young people they were working with had experienced abuse within a relationship.
