The From Boys to Men Project was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council to explore why some boys become domestic abuse perpetrators when others do not. In so doing, it sought to establish what more could be done to reduce the number of young men who become perpetrators. The study involved three phases of data collection including a survey of school children aged 13-14, focus groups with 69 young people aged 13-19, and life history interviews with 30 young men, aged 16-21, who had experienced domestic violence as victims, perpetrators or witnesses. Reports on all three stages of the project are available on our website www.boystomenproject.com This report documents the findings of the first phase of The From Boys to Men Project. The findings reported here are drawn from a survey of 1,203 school children, aged 13-14.
