Prevention campaigning is at the heart of the Our Girl dissemination campaign across the UK.
Our Girl partners on the ground across the UK are delivering prevention campaigns in secondary schools, colleges and universities, important sites in the prevention of violence against women and girls, safe spaces in which young people can feel protected, listened to and are able to make disclosures. Alongside this campaigning work includes direct action in the community and youth centres as well as high level training to frontline professionals.
