Report and Support Quarterly Summer 2021 Action plan for 2021 and 2022

To effectively interrogate this baseline data, the Forum will meet and listen to the different voices and perspectives of both students and staff.

The Forum will raise awareness of the tool and build confidence in using it. We will do this by:

  • Supplementing the Report and Support Webpages by student-led engagement with social media posts that explain how to make a report and what happens to reports after they have been submitted.
  • Embedding information about Report and Support in student orientation and staff inductions.
  • Exploring adding Report and Support to other webpages and events to highlight the tool.

The Equally Safe Group will lead a pilot of The Emily Test, a Gender-based Violence Charter that aims to improve prevention, intervention and support concerning gender-based violence (GBV) in further and higher education. A series of student/staff Focus Groups will be conducted to consider the Charter standards in relation to University policies and provision including Report and Support. This pilot will conclude in November of 2021.
