Consent matters

Consent is an important part of our daily lives and how we interact with those around us. Asking to borrow a friend’s phone before making a call or asking for permission before entering someone’s home comes naturally to us, so why is asking for consent before sex any different? Find out why Concent Matters.

Ethical bystanders

A bystander is someone who witnesses an event. An ethical bystander is someone who witnesses an event that concerns them, chooses to do something, and considers the safest way to intervene. Ethical bystanders play an essential role in keeping our campus safe and help build a culture of respect and zero-tolerance to violence. Find out about being an ethical bystander.

Consent Matters

Consent Matters is our free online course available on Blackboard that will help you understand sexual consent and how to recognise situations when consent can and can't be given, whatever your gender or sexuality.
