Gender Based and Sexual Violence

content

We use the term Gender Based Violence (GBV) to refer to many forms of harm, abuse, and harassment. This includes domestic abuse (including coercive control), sexual harassment, and rape & sexual assault.

  • UHI is committed to supporting any student who is a victim/survivor of GBV, regardless of their gender, sex, or sexual orientation.
  • The UHI Student Code of Conduct clearly states that Gender Based Violence is unacceptable in any environment
  • GBV is never the fault of the victim/survivor, and we will not victim-blame
  • At UHI, we will listen and we can help - click the buttons below to find out more

Staff members can also face Gender Based Violence, or have experienced this in the past. Supporting this area of work can also have an emotional, and potentially upsetting, impact on staff. Support can be found using the Specialist (External) Support contacts list above.  For further support, you can also contact your local HR Team and/or ask about Employee Assistance Programmes.
