Sexual Violence Prevention Project Evaluation

Rape Crisis Scotland has published the evaluation into its Sexual Violence Prevention Project, which works with young people across Scotland on issues relating to sexual violence, consent and healthy relationships. Key findings include:

  • The project increased knowledge about what the law says sexual violence is – 53% of young people agreed they knew what they law said prior to attending the workshops. This increased to 89% after attending.
  • Attitudes also changed significantly, with the data suggesting that the workshop sessions were successful in raising young people’s awareness of sexual violence, the importance of equality and consent in healthy relationships, and that the responsibility for sexual violence lies with perpetrators rather than victims.
  • 94% of young people think it is important that they have education on these issues
  • Young people overwhelmingly agreed that adults were right to be concerned about young people and relationships
  • Teachers are concerned about early sexualisation, abusive relationships and bullying on social media
