Youth campaigners to tackle abusive relationships

East London and West Essex Guardian Series: A youth group is planning to tackle abusive relationships A youth group is planning to tackle abusive relationships

Volunteers are inviting young people to a discuss warning signs of abusive relationships.

Team v Redbridge, a group from youth charity vInspired, are holding the event as part of a campaign tackling domestic abuse.

The event will take place on February 15 at Redbridge Central Library, in Clements Road, Ilford, and will include music from local performers.

Team v Redbridge leader, Rebecca Kemal, said: “Many young people do not receive adequate relationship education about what makes up a healthy relationship.

“Some people think that if you’re partner doesn’t hit you then their relationship is healthy, but psychological manipulation and emotional abuse can do a lot of damage.

“We hope that our event will allow young people discuss and debate what they think makes a relationship healthy and to become more aware of any warning signs and support services that are available in Redbridge.”
