The South Yorkshire Violence Reduction Unit (VRU) has visited a KRS Education training event at the Niagara Centre in Sheffield.
KRS Education is an education and training provider, which has received grant funding from the VRU’s Violence Against Women and Girls Reduction Fund.
Using the VRU funding, KRS is delivering a range of activities to care for, empower, support, influence, and educate women and girls, as well as trying to change the cultural and social attitudes which contribute to Violence Against Women and Girls.
The event at Niagara included a range of activities covering different aspects of Violence Against Women and Girls. The VRU attended for one of the afternoon sessions, a short self-defence class delivered to a group of young people.
Graham Jones, Head of the South Yorkshire Violence Reduction Unit said: “Projects such as that delivered by KRS Education are important not just in supporting people in the short term, but also in helping to deliver the change in attitudes which is essential to tackle Violence Against Women and Girls in the long term.
“I’m pleased that the VRU has been able to support KRS through the Violence Against Women and Girls Reduction Fund, and that the Unit was able to attend the event at Niagara to see the programme in action.”
