STAR Programme

STAR project has specifically designed courses aimed at children, teenagers and younger adults to look at safety, trust and respect in relationships. It provides them with a toolkit of knowledge and resources that are designed to prevent them entering a domestically abusive relationship or, if they are in an abusive relationship, the knowledge on how to leave that relationship safely and gain support. There is now a course for key stage 3 and 4 and this considers the pressures teenagers and younger adults have from social media and smart phones.


Each stage of the programme examines domestic abuse and clarifies for those involved that domestic abuse is not their fault. During these sessions children and young people are encouraged to explore their feelings and emotions and to rebuild any healthy relationships within their family. Other topics which are covered on the STAR Programme aimed at those over 14 years old include:

  • Respectful Relationships
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Gender Stereotyping
  • Sexual Consent
  • Sexting
  • Pornography
  • Sexual Exploitation
  • Perception

In order to be involved on the STAR project you can either refer your children to the project, they can self-refer or we can accept referrals from outside agencies.
