As our Young People's Programme comes to an end in spring 2015, we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been involved since its launch.

Over the last two years we have worked with partners to improve and develop the local response for young people who experience interpersonal violence. This has included training Young People's Violence Advisors (YPVAs), providing regional support and encouraging those responsible for local domestic violence strategies to acknowledge young people's needs.

Christine Etheridge, Young People's Programme Manager, says: “Although our programme is coming to an end in March 2015, we want to reassure people that we will continue to help those working with young people affected by abuse. This will include training YPVAs as part of our work to make more people safe. We are also currently developing practice briefings to share the knowledge developed through the programme and we will continue to collect and analyse data about young people. In addition, young people will be central to CAADA's future strategy as it develops.

“We would like to thank everyone who has been involved in the programme for their hard work, including our funders, the Department for Education.”
