The Disrespect NoBody campaign helps prevent young people from becoming perpetrators and victims of abusive relationships by encouraging them to re-think their views of abuse, controlling behaviour and what consent and sexting – the sending of explicit images by phone or email – means within relationships. The campaign is targeted at 12 to 18 year olds – both boys and girls – and aims to prevent them from becoming perpetrators and victims of abusive relationships. It provides information on understanding the meaning of consent, what rape is, relationship abuse, pornography and sexting, along with the signs on how to spot them, the consequences and supporting advice.
