Speak Up Speak Out

Robert Gordon University and RGU:Union have a zero tolerance approach to sexual violence and harassment and are committed to providing a working and learning environment where everyone is treated with dignity and respect.

We want to make sure that your voices are heard.  Whoever you are, we will listen to you. Whenever an incident is reported we will take it seriously, deal with it promptly and ensure that no-one is subjected to victimisation as a result of reporting.

We want you to feel empowered to report an incident, and we hope that by making it easier to report, you will feel safer and know that we are all working together to make our community an inclusive and welcoming environment.

Gender Based Violence (GBV) can affect children, young people and adults, take multiple forms and occurs in a diverse range of settings. It is any action that results in physical, sexual and psychological harm or suffering to women, children and young people, or undermines their human dignity, through, for example, threats, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or private life.

We are currently in the process of rolling out GBV awareness training to our community to increase understanding, change perceptions and to encourage everyone to be proactive in preventing GBV.

This could affect around 11 million homes in England, Wales, and Scotland (Northern Ireland sets its own cap).

The cap for prepayment meter customers will increase by £87 per year, affecting around 4 million households.
