“It’s not about getting the answer you want, but listening to the one you get.”
That’s what this new animated video produced by Aardman on behalf of Gloucestershire’s Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) , hopes to teach Gloucestershire’s young people, as part of a commitment to tackle Violence and Intimidation against Women and Girls (VIAWG) in the county.
This 90-second video called ‘Consent’ is aimed at children aged between 9 and 13, and will be used as a teaching resource in primary and secondary schools across Gloucestershire to help young people understand consent and boundaries.
Watch the video below.
If you live in Gloucestershire and are aged 9-21, you can get support from our TIC+ counsellors. TIC+ works hard at raising funds so they can arrange for a counsellor to see you for free, all you need to do is call us on 01594 372777 or text us on 07520 634063 to arrange an appointment. We know it can be hard to take that first step but, like the other young people we’ve helped, you’ll be so glad you did.
If you need to speak to someone urgently, call NHS 111 (on 111) or the Samaritans on 116 123. There’s always someone there to help, and any conversations you have with them are confidential.
TIC+ also offers a Parent Support & Advice Line. If your child lives in Gloucestershire and is between the ages of 0 and 25 and you, as a parent or carer, would like support, please get in touch. To make it easier to reach out for help we offer a choice of ways to contact us on Freephone 0800 6525675 or web-chat. Whichever option you choose, there is no need to make an appointment, drop-in anytime during our open hours.
Alternatively, if you are a parent and would like to arrange counselling for a young person who lives in Gloucestershire and is aged 9-21, they can get support from our TIC+ counsellors. All they, or someone they trust, needs to do is call us on 01594 372777 or text us on 07520 634063 to give us some details so we can arrange an appointment.
