Sexual Violence Awareness Week

Monday 4th February - Sunday 10th February

The Students’ Union is collaborating with NTU to raise awareness of sexual violence this February.  

As part of Sexual Violence Awareness Week, we’re hosting a range of events, from a panel discussion to a self-defence class, that aim to help put a stop to sexual abuse and highlight the support available in the local community.   

 

Come and collect a free wristband at all our events throughout the week and add your voice to the thousands of people who say #itsnotok.

 

Wristbands can be collected from the Student Services Centre’s on all three campuses.

 

Any donations will benefit Nottinghamshire Sexual Violence Support Services.
