Youth Issues - Violence

Young people can experience violence both within their own families and outside of them. It can be physical, verbal or both. Violence can be anything from verbal bullying by peers to domestic violence and gun and knife crime. The films featured below are some Sharp Shotz previous winners expressing their experience with violent behaviour and what they would like to see change. Is violence something you have experienced and would like to see stopped?

The websites featured are just a small selection of what is available and will help you understand the issue better and provide you with facts and figures you can use.
