“What can give us real hope though is the fact that a quarter of all YPI recipient charities in this academic year have been those supporting survivors of sexual and domestic abuse.
“Young people are, at a formative stage, learning about these issues and feel confident to voice the impacts of this sensitive topic.
“Empowering young people to speak out, speak up and make a difference is hugely important for the evolution of such attitudes.”
YPI is delivered in 250 Scottish secondary schools. Through a unique programme of teamwork, research and competition, each school awards a grant of £3000 to a local, grassroots charity tackling a social issue.
