We've developed a series of four posters aimed at young people which focus on Healthy Relationships. They are ideal for display in schools and colleges. You can download them here as a complete set.
The Healthy Relationships Checklist is a useful tool to use with young people when exploring personal relationships. It identifies behaviours that are unhealthy or abusive and outlines what you should expect from a relationship.
IDAS also produce information leaflets in Mandarin, Polish, Turkish and Urdu. These leaflets explain domestic abuse and provide guidance for people whose immigration status may not be secure. The leaflets can be downloaded as a set here.
