#R4Respect

#R4Respect is an education and prevention strategy led by young people in Logan and surrounds to prevent anti-social behaviour and violence. Fifteen #R4Respect Youth Ambassadors have signed up to create and share messages that promote the values, skills and knowledge needed for respectful relationships.

#R4Respect encourages the whole community to foster healthier relationships among young people. It is widely supported by Logan businesses, organisations, community groups and government departments.

 #R4Respect messages

Through #R4Respect, young people will create messages and share them through digital media like Instagram and Facebook to reach other young people.

Messages will be consistent with national anti-violence campaigns, and will focus on four themes:

  • We all have the right to be free of abuse and violence.

  • Respect means being fair and valuing others as equals.

  • Value diversity. Value culture. Celebrate difference.

  • Negotiate through disagreements. Don’t hit out.


Components of #R4Respect

This exciting program will incorporate:

  • creative input from young people developing digital strategies and activities to foster respectful relationships
  • peer education for young people
  • public awareness of the #R4Respect messages through media
  • engagement with the wider community to promote respectful relationships.

Outcomes

  • Increased exposure to support young people in Logan to develop respectful relationships
  • Increased public awareness that domestic violence can be reduced through respectful relationships
  • Reduction in domestic violence as public messaging prompts help-seeking behaviour.
