Stand Against Violence works with young people across the South West to prevent youth violence. Our work to date has received overwhelmingly positive feedback reporting reductions in violence, fighting and improved attitudes towards violence.
We deliver violence prevention workshops to schools across the region, focussing on personal safety; anger and aggression; basic life support and the awareness of choices and consequences.These workshops are ideal for PSHE and safety awareness education.
With your donations we can deliver anti violence workshops, self- defence and vital first aid lessons in schools and youth organisations. We can also keep our late night café open in Taunton, which provides young people a place to socialise in a safe environment. Donations also allow us to continuously develop new and innovative educational resources combatting violence in our communities.
SAV was set up in 2005 following the tragic murder of 17 year old Llyod Fouracre; SAV aims to prevent future tragedies such as this and save families the grief of losing loved ones to violence. The workshops we deliver equip and inform students in an effective manner how to Stand Against Violence.
