Hear2Change is a youth-led project running in Haringey & Islington to prevent violence against women and girls (VAWG). 1 in 4 women in the UK are victims of domestic or sexual violence in their lifetime, but we believe that if we can change attitudes and behaviours when people are still young we can stop violence before it happens. The project runs educational group work sessions, offers expert 1:1 support and a Champions programme for young people to run campaigns in their communities.
