Protect our Women (POW)


The Protect Our Women (POW) Project is a school-based provision delivering a wide range of education programmes to children, young people, professionals, and parents. POW is aimed at raising awareness on strains and root causes of VAWG, healthy relationships, and emotional wellbeing, taking a holistic and preventative approach to tackling VAWG. The Project is commissioned by Haringey and is on its 10th year running and has been expanded and adapted based on feedback and evolving needs over the years. Across Projects & Programmes POW has received stellar feedback from CYP and professionals. All programmes and sessions can be delivered on a bespoke basis.
