Can youth work tackle sexual harassment in schools?


12 May 2016

The Women and Equalities Committee has launched their first parliamentary inquiry into the scale and impact of sexual harassment and sexual violence in schools. More details on the scope of the inquiry is available here.

NYA is likely to submit evidence to the committee on this important topic. We are interested in exploring whether youth workers could have a positive impact on levels of sexual harassment in schools and what the best ways of achieving a reduction would be. We are interested in any specific examples of schemes and their success or otherwise at tackling this problem. Email us any examples or case studies to nya@nya.org.uk by 19 May 2016.

We will fully attribute any examples we cite and make our response available online.
