Education is at the heart of Savera UK’s campaigning activities.
We don’t just address the effects of ‘honour’-based abuse and harmful practices. We tackle the causes and educate people about them as well. We approach education in three key ways.
Working with schools and young people
We go into secondary schools to deliver our schools engagement programme, educating the next generation about ‘honour’-based abuse and harmful practices and empowering them to speak out, as well as supporting teachers to understand and deliver educational activities.
We also encourage peer-to-peer education through our youth programme, Savera UK Youth, a group of 11 – 25-year-olds who create and drive campaigns to directly educate and inform the younger generation, empowering young people to inspire and educate their peers, while also developing and gaining invaluable personal skills.
If you would like Savera UK to deliver sessions within your school or youth group then please get in touch here.
Working with communities
Savera UK seeks to raise awareness about harmful practices and domestic abuse within communities, as well as working in partnership with agencies (both statutory and voluntary) to liaise and facilitate community sessions.
Culture and tradition have an enormous influence on the lives of every community and it is important to know that you can speak out and stand up against practices that are harmful to you or to others.
If you would like Savera UK to deliver sessions within your community group setting then please get in touch here.
Training for professionals
We develop and deliver training, conferences and events to educate and equip professionals working in at-risk communities or with individuals who may be at risk.
Our professional training provides guidance and practical advice for agencies such as social services, local authorities, health services, immigration, police, teachers, medical professionals and voluntary support organisations.
We are also fully embedded in the Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC) in for Wirral and Liverpool, which allows us to work with professional agencies to provide appropriate services to those at risk, when it is safe to do so.
