Not On: Everything you need to know

Trigger warning: Mentions sexual harassment and assault


What is the Not On Campaign? 
Our Not On campaign started in 2015 with the aim of increasing knowledge and awareness around the prevalent issues of consent, sexual harassment, and sexual assault. At the Guild of Students, we believe that University should be a safe place for every student, where your bodily autonomy is respected, and we believe that any form of sexual harassment is not acceptable.

Meet the Team
Our campaign is lead by a team of five Student Ambassadors and staff at the Guild. Meet this year’s team of Ambassadors: Caitlin, Daisy, Johanna, Jordan and Shannon...

What do you do as part of the campaign?
As part of the campaign, our Student Ambassadors lead two different workshops and we are currently developing others. 

The workshops are delivered to students or student groups and aim to delve into what consent is, what healthy relationships look like, and allow a safe space for students to talk about these topics. Learn about each workshop below:

1.    Consent Workshop
This workshop discusses how to identify sexual harassment, the impact it has and promotes safe bystander intervention.

2.    LGBTQ+ Workshop
This workshop aims to raise awareness of the issues faced in the LGBTQ+ community in relation to relationships, sex and abusive behaviours.  This workshop can also be delivered as a safe space for members of the LGBTQ+ community.

The Not On workshops are interactive and provide you with the skills to build healthy boundaries to apply not only on campus, but in your own day-to-day life, allowing everyone to feel safe from any discrimination or harassment. Although this is a serious topic, workshops are a positive environment where learning is encouraged without judgement. 

 

Raising Awareness
As well as workshops, we run various awareness raising events throughout the year, including our 12 Days of Consent Christmas campaign where, on the run up to Christmas, we’ll be discussing consent and healthy relationships during the holidays. Follow our Facebook page for more info and advice.
