Applying Safe Behaviors: Preventing and Responding to Peer Violence Amongst Children and Young People

SOS Villages International

In the project “Applying Safe Behaviours”, SOS Children’s Villages is working to enable children, young people and professionals to prevent and appropriately respond to peer violence amongst children and young people in alternative care and vulnerable families.

“Applying Safe Behaviours: Preventing and Responding to Peer Violence Amongst Children Without or At Risk of Losing Parental Care” is a two-year project (2021-2023) co-funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship (REC) Programme of the European Union.

The project aims to make children and young people active agents in creating a safe environment for themselves and their peers, and to enable professionals who work with and care for children and young people to respond appropriately to peer violence amongst them.

The project is run in cooperation with SOS Children’s Villages’ member associations in Belgium, France, Italy, Romania and Spain.
