Shift the norm from keeping quiet to talking about sexual harm
Educating, supporting and providing support services for all on campus is the starting point for preventing sexual violence. Ensuring this is visible in all media formats is important alongside continuous messaging to provide reminders that these sites and places are available.
Awareness campaigns and messages help to reinforce the importance of consent, healthy relationships, caring and kindness for all who are on our campus.
Starting the year with a plan of what this looks like is important for the continuous development of this key message. This is part of the duty of care and the pastoral code of conduct for all students and for ensuring staff and students are working in an environment and place where they can feel safe and flourish.
Part of preventing sexual harm is keeping the conversation alive and ensuring all voices are heard. Shift the norm from keeping quiet to talking about sexual violence.
