GOV.UK - New phase of campaign encourages students to say Enough to abuse

The Government launched the 'Enough to abuse ' Campaign, in March 2022, encouraging bystander intervention, asking people to call out bad behaviour through television adverts, billboards, social media and radio advertising.

The timing of the update coincides with the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, which begins the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence.

Unfortunately violence against women and girls is still one of the most widespread human rights violations in the world.There are now 30 universities signed up to the campaign, I would hope that the universities that have not signed up for the support package haven't done so, as they are running their own campaigns and consent training within the university.

We all have a part to play in ending violence against women, and are committed to supporting universities through prevention, within our Code of Practice we have a whole instrument dedicated to the prevention of student harassment and sexual assault, universities need to look at their policies and prevention strategies to ensure this is something that declines. You can read the full article from GOV.UK here. And please get in touch if you would like more information on our Code of Practice in this area, as you can now just apply for this as a stand alone area with us, as we are now modular.
