May 2022 New Sexual Violence support workers are in place.
January 2022: Over the next few months, 2 new Sexual Violence Support Workers are being recruited. This should be in place by Easter. As a result of this policy, support for students suffering from intimate partner violence will be included in the job descriptions (which have been finalised and should be going live over the next few weeks).
May 2021: The University have funded a new job vacancy which would take up the role of liaising between LUU's and the University's Help and Support teams. The qualifications of a councillor trained in how to deal with students who have suffered from intimate partner violence have been incorporated into the specification of the job description for this vacancy. Moreover, LUU has now acquired a seat on the city-wide Domestic Violence Accountability Forum which is chaired by Women's Aid. This will give LUU some scope in influencing strategy around tackling domestic violence within the student community on a larger scale.
