In 2021, CADV commenced a pilot project called First Time, Last Time (FTLT). This is a programme that targets older adolescents and youth to prevent the initiation of violence in relationships.
The central idea of the programme is that everyone can make a change to embrace and practice non-violence in their relationships. The title of the initiative channels the commitment, that whether as perpetrator, victim, or bystander, the first time one is affected by interpersonal violence, (which usually starts with verbal abuse), will also be the last time. This is because affected persons will have the tools to recognise abusive conduct and be empowered and self-aware enough to make a choice that keeps them and others safe from harm.
