This is Abuse is a campaign launched by the UK government to inform and support victims of abuse in relationships specifically targeted at young people. There’s even an FAQ to help you identify it and advice on how to tackle specific situations.

This video tackles rape in relationships where both parties are teenagers and is aimed at perpetrators.


This one looks at non-physical abuse aimed at teenage perpetrators.


Rape where there’s an age gap and highlights the issue of consent. (And uses actors from popular British YA soap Hollyoaks)
