DAY is the Domestic abuse Awareness for Youth programme.
It is a unique multimedia programme that uses short films, advertisements and chart
music to raise awareness and provide education about domestic abuse, in a relevant
and exciting way.
It challenges detrimental mindsets about domestic abuse, explores how beliefs inform behaviour, and looks at the role of the media in reinforcing unhealthy beliefs.
It is based on the Freedom Programme for women and is designed to be used with young people over the age of 14, although can be adapted for use with young people over 11 years.
DAY is very versatile and can be run in most settings with young people including:
- State Secondary/High Schools
- Private Schools
- Youth Offending Groups
- Pupil Referral Units
- Youth Groups
DAY was created by Be Free to meet the growing need to provide domestic abuse education and awareness for young people. DAY cannot be run without DAY training.
