Ashfields Dragons Den-style competition: tackling teenage relationship

Ashfields Dragons Den-style competition: tackling teenage relationship

Equation were proud to be part of this year’s Dragons’ Den-style project, funded by Ashfield Community Safety Partnership. Year 10 students at 5 Ashfield secondary schools competed to produce an awareness-raising campaign aimed at promoting healthy relationships and tackling abuse in teenage relationships.

 

Each school presented their ideas to a panel of judges which included Nottinghamshire’s police & Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping, and Equation’s Equate Coordinator Claire Dixon. All judges were amazed by the incredibly high standard of all schools’ presentations.

 

Sutton Community Academy won first place and a £1000 prize - congratulations to the whole team! Their campaign included an original song, a colourful hand logo and a series of four short video clips highlighting the four forms of abuse. Their strong, clear messages were praised by all judges. Their tagline “don’t pollute your relationship” targets perpetrators of abuse, and their campaign name “AIR” stands for “abuse in relationships”- very clever!
