It is Sexual Abuse & Sexual Violence Awareness Week which is the UK’s national week to raise awareness of sexual abuse and violence. During this week up till Sunday, hundreds of events will take place all over the country to raise awareness of the issue and shine a spotlight on what is normally a very hidden subject.
Here at the University, we want to make sure everyone is treated with dignity and respect. As part of our continued work towards this, we have developed Inform Kent (InK) which is an online reporting tool which empowers students to record details of incidents such as sexual assault, harassment, relationship abuse or hate crime.
The most vital use of InK is to ensure that you gain access to the support that is available to you in the aftermath of an incident.
InK also gives you the option to have your voice heard. You are given the option to record an incident and give your name, so that you can be contacted by specialist support. Or you can choose to remain anonymous.
The information that you provide will help us to make continued progress in making our University the safest it can be. You are in control here. Have your voice.
