Splitz Devon' Safeguarding Team feel honoured to have recently worked with Project Pyramid. Project Pyramid has been created by a group of inspiring young people aged 15 – 17 years as part of their National Citizen Service (NCS) Programme. The aim of project pyramid is to raise awareness of domestic abuse amongst young people aged 11 – 16 years and to raise money for a charity. We were delighted that they chose Splitz' Devon service.
Splitz Devon have worked closely with Project Pyramid to help them raise awareness by speaking at their launch event and supporting the project throughout the process. The young people used a range of resources to raise awareness including utilizing social media platforms, creating a hash tag (#changeDAviews) and producing a rap and music video. Project Pyramid raised an amazing £225 for Splitz Devon. We plan to use this money within the Safeguarding Team to create a further resource to help spread awareness for domestic abuse amongst young people.
The young people originally intended that Project Pyramid would be a short term project for the students’ NCS project, however due to their passion for this area the young people have decided to keep the project going for the foreseeable future. Splitz Devon therefore plans to remain working alongside Project Pyramid to help them raise awareness. We look forward to continue to work alongside these passionate young people and support them in this venture.
