'Our Voices' Project: Opportunity to get involved
The 'Our Voices' project is coordinated by the International Centre: researching child sexual exploitation, violence and trafficking at the University of Bedfordshire in the UK. It is a three-year, pan-European initiative funded by the Oak Foundation, the University of Bedfordshire and other supporters.
'Our Voices' will promote the involvement of young people in efforts to prevent sexual violence of children across Europe. Project elements will include facilitating a pan-European network of youth advisors, supporting a number of youth-led activities and collaborating with organisations and projects to develop participatory work with young people (under 18) at risk of or affected by sexual violence.
The team are currently collecting information from projects and organisations working to prevent and respond to the sexual violence of young people in Europe.
If your project is involved or interested in participatory practice and developing youth-led work on the topic of sexual violence, please get in touch with claire.cody (at) beds.ac.uk. The deadline for responses is Friday 31st January 2014.
