We aim to raise awareness of sexual and gender-based violence within the sports community through our youth-led campaigns.
Our first campaign run by the Rugby League Youth Panel is a social media (Twitter & Facebook) campaign based on the Council of Europe international campaign ‘One-in-Five‘. According to the Council of Europe:
“Available data suggest that about 1 in 5 children in Europe are victims of some form of sexual violence. It is estimated that in 70% to 85% of cases, the abuser is somebody the child knows and trusts.”
