We are all responsible for ensuring our campuses are safe and respectful environments. We all have a role to play in the prevention of sexual misconduct. Ensure you have the knowledge and skills to make consensual relationships, intervene when witnessing sexual misconduct and help a survivor.

Consent matters

Consent is a vital part of any intimate relationship or sexual interaction. Ensure the safety of you and your partner/s by making sure everyone involved is informed and comfortable. When it comes to sex, consent is not an option. Find out more about why consent matters and how to access support?

Ethical bystanders

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 how to be 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.
