Hope for young people

overcoming challenges, making positive life choices and fulfilling potential
The CRUSH Course

A tried and tested structured programme of group support and empowerment for young people that raises awareness about issues in teenage relationships and empowers young people to stay safe when dating and form healthy relationships.

The sessions are run in small groups and are specifically designed for 13-19 year olds that have either experienced or are at risk of experiencing abusive relationship in the home or in their own relationships.  It aims to help give young people the skills, knowledge and tools to be able to avoid abusive relationships, exit an abusive relationship safely and help them to deal with domestic abuse within their home environment.

The programme has been designed to complement the information on relationships given in PHSE lessons.   For more information see www.westmerciawomensaid.org/crush
