TRAPPED: Prevention and Awareness
TRAPPED is a group education and awareness programme for children and young people which educates and empowers them around the crucial issue of relationship abuse.
It features detailed lesson plans for ages 11-15, providing healthy, age-appropriate messages around gender, consent, healthy relationships, sexuality, abuse, cyber-safety, gangs, and other risk factors. TRAPPED offers them the language and understanding to communicate about these issues, know their rights, increase their resilience and know where to go for help.
TRAPPED was originally developed in partnership with the Home Office, Sandwell MBC and West Midlands Police. It was designed in accordance with PSHE Association guidelines on Sex and Relationships Education. It was peer-reviewed and recommended as good practice by the Department for Education and Home Office in the report: Tackling Knives and Serious Youth Violence Programme Good Practice Guide 2010-2011.
