Sexual Violence Liaison Offices

Our friendly and supportive Sexual Violence Liaison Officers (SVLOs) are available to offer confidential one-to-one support to all members of the University who have been affected by sexual violence or misconduct.

Their role is to listen empathetically and without judgement. You can tell your SVLO as much or as little as you like about what has happened and in your own time. They will ensure that you have all the necessary support available, helping you to access that support. They can also provide information on the reporting options, both within the University and externally. However, they will never pressure you to make any decisions on reporting the incident and instead they will support whatever you feel is best for you.

They can also liaise with external organisations and other University staff on your behalf.

Support can be accessed in person in our confidential and comfortable advice rooms, over the phone, or via Microsoft Teams.

To access the service, please email or call 01332 591 507 where our friendly advice assistant will schedule an appointment for you.

Union Advisor and SVLO

I trained as a Sexual Violence Liaison officer and offer support to students who have experienced sexual harassment or violence either recently or in the past. I understand that seeking advice and support can be a very difficult and personal decision and so I am here to listen empathetically without judgement and discuss support options that are available.

You are not alone.
