Our work with young people

1 in 10 children are living with domestic abuse, with teens aged 16-19 most at risk


At Equation, we’ve designed and delivered early intervention and awareness raising projects in schools since 2002.

Our award-winning domestic abuse prevention and healthy relationships education reaches over 7000 children and young people in schools, colleges and community settings across Nottingham/Nottinghamshire each year. 

Equation believes that all children and young people deserve equal and healthy relationships that are free from abuseOur work achieves this is through specialist relationships education. Everyone has a role to play in supporting children and young people towards this goal, and all our interventions, training and resources are designed with this in mind.

The GREAT Project is absolutely amazing! It totally helped my son understand why we no longer live with his dad. He can also assess a healthy/unhealthy relationship and grew up so much emotionally. 10/10



The GREAT project

Those equation books are great…I’ve used them with 2 families, and one YP asked if he could keep the book
