About Us

Tender is a charity that works to promote healthy relationships based on equality and respect. Using theatre and the arts, we engage young people in violence prevention, enabling them to recognise and avoid abuse and violence.

Tender was established in 2003, since then, we have worked with thousands of young people and professionals to educate them about positive relationships and creating supportive, abuse-free communities. We challenge attitudes which tolerate, condone and normalise violence and increase skills in safeguarding against unhealthy relationships.

We work in schools, youth centres, pupil referral units, offices and healthcare settings creating tailored projects which offer support and meet specific needs of young people and any staff that may require increased awareness of domestic abuse. Tender aims to engage, to challenge, to entertain and to provoke a fundamental reassessment of our tolerance to abuse.
