Standing Safe, a student-staff initiative set up to campaign against sexual violence and the Rosey Project the Support and Prevention Programme for young people at Glasgow Rape Crisis, are running a Gender Based Violence Prevention Information and Workshop Day.
Earlier this year the Scottish Government revealed that there has been a steady increase in the number of reported violent sexual crimes since 1974, with a 46 per cent increase in the last decade alone.
Dr Kallia Manoussaki, a lecturer in psychology at UWS who leads the Standing Safe campaign has , said that
“Sexual violence is a growing but largely hidden problem which is particularly prominent among young people between the ages of 17 and 25. Education institutions have a responsibility to address the matter and University of the West of Scotland is committed to developing a proactive approach to help students across the country learn about and prevent the root causes of sexual violence.”
To find out more just drop in on Thursday 28th November 2019 at our Paisley Campus. The event is being held in Room P.116, running from 12 noon until 4 pm. There is no need to book – just come along.
