#STOP1in5 Hand-Signal Campaign

We aim to raise awareness of sexual and gender-based violence within the sports community through our youth-led campaigns.

#STOP1in5 @RLYouthPanel

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.”

We have had huge support from rugby league and wider sports community and beyond. Please follow us and show your support by sending a 1in5 picture to #STOP1in5 @RLYouthPanel. Read more about this campaign here.
