Smile, You’re Beautiful (PEEK Project) – Group Award Winner – 2011

“Smile, You’re beautiful” is a peer education group offered through the PEEK Project based in the East End of Glasgow. The peer education group is made up of three local young women who prioritised sexualisation, sexual exploitation and trafficking as the issues they wanted to educate other young women about. They completed confidence building sessions along with some skills training. They then identified other external agencies whom they could invite in to inform them about the issues. As a result of this, they developed and led peer education sessions to raise awareness of some areas of violence against women.
