Violence Is Preventable
Personal safety and abuse prevention resources for all ages

  VIP Resources

VIP (Violence Is Preventable) is a multi award winning abuse and violence prevention programme for children, young people and vulnerable adults throughout the UK and abroad, developed by the Scottish charity, Eighteen And Under.

It works on three levels:-

  • Early disclosures - meaning abuse is stopped sooner
  • Staying safe - avoiding violent or abusive situations
  • Prevention - changing the mindset of potential abusers of the future.

Independent research by the University of Dundee has found VIP to be the only abuse prevention programme world wide, proven to not only increase child safety through raised awareness but also to substantially increase the number of abuse disclosures.
