We all have different understandings of what peer on peer abuse is and how it presents but we all know just how harmful this can be in a young persons present and future. We wanted to be able to engage young women in a conversation around peer on peer abuse without focusing on the more extreme cases.

Our Definition - Peer on peer abuse is any form of physical, sexual, emotional and financial abuse and coercive control exercised between young people and within young people’s relationships (both intimate and non-intimate). Everyone directly involved in peer on peer abuse is under the age of 18.

Following on from consultations and conversations with different groups of young women we have developed a Peer on Peer (POP) Abuse Campaign, Rewind: Mind the Signs. The campaign will run as a graphic novel in 12 weekly instalments following the life of 14 year old Jasmine as she navigates teen friendships and pressures.
