Mandate and fund Independent Sexual Violence Advisor at universities

Petition Details

We want the Government to make sure all universities have an Independent Sexual Violence Advisor (ISVA) on all university campuses by providing financial support and making it mandatory that all universities have an ISVA.

Additional Information

Studies have shown that almost two thirds (62%) of students and graduates have experienced sexual violence at UK universities. Therefore it is imperative that victims of sexual violence receive responsive support where their needs are prioritised in order to make the transition from victim to survivor – this can only be achieved if victims receive support from specialist advisors.

If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
