Stand Up! RASASH is a young person's volunteering project which provides a platform for young Highlanders between the ages of 13-25 to stand up against sexual violence.
The project is young person led and community focused: that means we ask young people what they think the biggest issues in their local communities are and we work together to come up with ideas to make a positive difference.
Stand Up! aims to:
1. Empower young people to safely and confidently challenge problematic ideas and behaviours around sexual violence and inequality in their communities by providing them with the knowledge and skills to do so.
2. Provide young people with experiences and opportunities which will enhance their life skills and well-being, and thus their future prospects.
3. Encourage community ownership of sexual violence and inequalities issues and promote social activism in the Highlands.
4. Make our support services more youth accessible by using the experiences of young people to shape the support we provide young survivors.
5. Promote and increase RASASH fundraising opportunities to increase our capacity to support survivors across the Highlands and to run future young people's projects.
