This is a great message about young people understanding healthy relationships.

Dear all,

Today we are excited to finally release our latest SafeStories video, Hope’s Story.  This story portrays the experience of Hope, as she meets and starts a relationship with Donte.  The plot and characters were created by young people during workshops with SAFE!, and the video was subsequently written and produced by 1848Media.

I hope everyone is safe and well at this time.  

My name is Elli Sarvari, and I am a PhD Researcher based at Staffordshire University. I am conducting research around barriers victim/survivors face when making a decision to report a crime of sexual offences to the police.
