The IMPACT project aimed to promote sustained participation of children and young people in Equally Safe and promote the use of evidence from young survivors of gender-based violence. We believe Increasing Meaningful Participation will help us Achieve Change Together – adults, children and young people.

Claire Houghton alongside 8 young experts of Voice Against Violence have received UK Economic and Social Research Council/Scottish Government funding to ensure the uptake and use of findings from the world-leading Voice Against Violence pilot (Scottish Government/The University of Edinburgh). Findings related to good practice for ethical, empowering and effective participation of young survivors in national policy-making, and findings from numerous research projects on young domestic abuse survivors’ priorities (and solutions) for action to tackle domestic abuse.
