The University of Law is an open and inclusive community. We understand that seeking advice and support for any form of sexual violence can be a very difficult and personal decision. This is why we have established a specialised support service for students who have experienced sexual violence. 

Our SVLOs complete LimeCulture‚Äôs SVLO development programme training which is an intensive course that equips SVLOs with the knowledge and specialist skills to identify risk and support the needs of students who have experienced sexual violence, both recent and non-recent. 

SVLOs provide a proactive support and advice service to students who have experienced sexual violence. SVLOs listen empathically without judgement. They will inform you about support available and discuss reporting options. SVLOs can also liaise with external organisations and other university staff on your behalf. We never push you to report and we understand how difficult it can be to ask for help. Support we offer is very much led by you.

How can I access this support?
Submit a report through Report and Support and one of the team will get back to you as soon as possible. 

If you are unable to complete the form contact

Confidentiality notice: 

The service will keep information you disclose confidential, however, if you share information that suggests that you or someone else is at risk of significant harm, we may have to report to a university safeguarding officer or the police. We will discuss this with you further at the beginning of the SVLO appointment.
