Crisscross pilot launches in Ireland




As part of the HSE Safer Nightlife Programme, the HSE National Social Inclusion Office is participating in a pilot EU project ‘Crisscross’ alongside agencies from Spain, Portugal, Italy and Luxembourg.

The Crisscross project aims to respond to a number of intersectional issues relating to gender, behaviours and substance use in nightlife settings. The project aims to address gender-based violence in nightlife, leisure and socialization venues frequented young adults (18-24 years old) through the design, testing and evaluation of innovative pilots, with the aim to raise awareness, change attitudes and prevent GBV behaviours -including LGBTIphobia- linked to sexual violence and substance use.

The project will involve:
