LMK is an education charity (no.1191149) who run workshops educating young people about healthy and unhealthy behaviours so that they can avoid abuse and thrive in relationships.

LMK works with schools and community groups to provide free relationship workshops for 11-24-year-olds. We discuss healthy and unhealthy behaviours, equip young people to spot warning signs of abuse and domestic violence (https://www.justletmeknow.org/10-signs) and introduce tools to keep them and their friends safe. We include practical lessons on topics including setting boundaries, helping a friend and breaking up safely. Workshops are inclusive of all gender identities and sexual orientations and tailored to participants’ ages and backgrounds

Why is relationship education needed?

UK domestic violence rates are high, and the problem starts young. Research from the NSPCC and the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime shows:

  • 25% of teenage girls and 20% of teenage boys experience physical partner violence
  • 75% of teenage girls and 50% of teenage boys experience emotional partner violence
  • 40% of 16-17-year-old girls have not received information on consent
  • Only 20% of 16–17-year-olds can tell if a relationship is abusive
  • In certain London boroughs (Camden, Islington, Westminster) 19% of domestic violence victims are under 24 and 20% of sexual abuse victims are under 18.
  • Nationwide, risks are only being exacerbated by the isolation and insecurity caused by COVID lockdowns.  Many of our partner organisations have witnessed the impact first hand
