Consent

Added: Category: Safeguarding

This package from Avon and Somerset Police is based on guidance from the Home Office, using the Disrespect Nobody campaign materials, but is tailored specifically to consent and sexual assault/rape, with additional input about the police. It also includes a video about the Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC), also known as ‘The Bridge’, which explains who they help and what services they provide, as we wanted young people in our force area to have access to information and support relevant to them locally, not just nationally. The lesson plan assumes that lessons about healthy relationships covering issues such as respect, trust and equality, have taken place beforehand as part of the broader PSHE curriculum taught by schools.

County Lines

Added: Category: Drugs, Violence

In 2017, the Home Office, National Crime Agency, the National Police Chief’s Council, the Children’s Society and Victim Support, as well as a number of smaller, individual organisations have all released new guidance on approaching the county lines problem as awareness around the issue continues to grow. Recognising young people at risk and intervening early is a key part of the strategy. This resource package is aimed at raising awareness about the county lines problem and helping young people to maintain resilience against becoming involved in it.

Digital resilience

Added: Category: Online

Digital resilience is a key skill that we want young people to develop. Whilst going online can be incredibly fun and enjoyable there can also be times when a young person can feel upset, not good enough or left out. These are the occasions when young people will need strategies to help themselves and also to help their friends if they are having a difficult time online. This lesson aims to look at the positive and negative experiences young people have online, consider the impact they may have and devise ways to build digital resilience.
