Project Advisory Board
Last week we had the second meeting of our Project Advisory Board, which was created to advise and make recommendations on the activities and outputs of the project. Last Wednesday this was attended by representatives from Lincolnshire County Council, the Students’ Union and a member of academic staff who researches in Gender-Based Violence, as well as the core Project Steering group.
#NoMore is a county-wide campaign which takes place in Lincolnshire twice a year, in September and February. The campaign exists to promote local services who support people who have experienced sexual violence and abuse, and aims to lead a culture change to prevent sexual violence from occurring. A number of organisations across Lincolnshire take part in the campaign, including Lincolnshire County Council, Lincolnshire Police and various sexual violence and abuse support services. This time the campaign is also partnering with CrimeStoppers, who will be sharing information on how people can use their service to anonymously pass information to the Police. You can find out more about the #NoMore campaign here.
This February, the #NoMore campaign will be running from the Monday 5th to Friday 9th. Over the course of the week, the Student Wellbeing Centre will be out around campus with information about the campaign, and about support which is available at the University and from local services. We will also be asking staff and students to get involved in the campaign again, by sharing what they want to see #NoMore of around sexual misconduct. We will be taking photos on the stands throughout the week, and posting them on the Student Wellbeing Centre Facebook and Twitter pages. If you would like to come and take your own #NoMore photo or get some information on the support services available, the Student Wellbeing Centre’s stands will run from 10am-2pm each day as follows:
Monday 5th February: Minerva Courtyard
Tuesday 6th February: Outside the Library
Thursday 8th February: Minerva Atrium
Friday 9th February: Minerva Courtyard
