A PROJECT that educates youngsters about domestic violence has been nominated for The National Lottery Awards.
The Trust Project, that delivers a programme to schools to encourage healthy relationships, is competing against nine other projects for the title of Best Education Project and a £2,000 prize.
The project, that has worked with pupils from Beaverwood School for Girls, Ravens Wood School for Boys and St. Mary and Joseph Catholic School, uses active lessons with pupils to tackle the issue of violence in relationships and promotes respect and trust among young people.
Education Manager for Trust Susie McDonald said: "We are thrilled to be in the semi-final of the National Lottery Awards. Our project has really benefited from Lottery funding, so it would be great for us to win an award."
