Savera UK Youth

We are Savera UK Youth and we will end ‘honour’-based abuse and harmful practices.

Savera UK Youth is a group of 11 – 25 year-olds dedicated to ending ‘honour’-based abuse and harmful practices, also known as HBA, and harmful practices. Savera UK Youth’s activists collectively empower one another to make change and raise awareness, inspiring other young people to take action.

During your time and involvement with Savera UK Youth, you will not only help make a collective difference, you will also develop personal skills and experience including organisation skills, public speaking, teamwork and creativity.

Savera UK Youth is passionate and committed to campaigning and raising awareness of ‘honour’-based abuse and harmful practices. These are violations of human rights which take away individuals’ freedom and cause lifelong impacts.

There is no excuse for abuse. Learn more about ‘honour’-based abuse and harmful practices by watching our Orange Brick Road video below.
