The Rise Report
This report details the findings of a national research project that investigates young women’s experiences and understanding of unhealthy relationships, domestic abuse and access to support. Scottish Women’s Aid commissioned this work on behalf of the Women’s Aid network, to inform accessible service development – so that Women’s Aid are better able to welcome all young women who require support. YWCA Scotland carried out this research alongside Young Women Rise, an advisory group consisting of 10 young women from across Scotland, some of whom have lived experience of unhealthy relationships. Scottish Women’s Aid and YWCA Scotland aim to use the findings of the research to better understand young women’s needs from support services. Women’s Aid will use the evidence from this research to develop services that better meet the needs of young women dealing with unhealthy relationships and domestic abuse.
