The teenage relationship abuse campaign is running from 14 February until the end of April 2013. The aim of the campaign it to prevent teenagers from becoming victims and perpetrators of abusive relationships. The campaign originally ran in March 2010 and again from September to December 2011.
The campaign encourages teenagers to re-think their views of acceptable violence, abuse or controlling behaviour in relationships and directs them to places for help and advice.
The This is Abuse campaign website gives teens the chance to discuss these issues with their peers and get access to third party support and advice.
