Draw the Line


Draw the Line

The 'Draw the Line' campaign aims to promote a positive, respectful community. A major message is that it is everyone’s responsibility to help draw the line.

As part of this campaign, workshops discussing sexual consent and bystander training are delivered to new students. These are designed to raise awareness of sexual violence and harassment in higher education, and begin an important dialogue about community standards here at St George’s. This is also an important opportunity to discuss how we can best support each other.

St George's SU is working with AVA and Rape Crisis South London (RASASC) to enable students to access free, non-judgemental, and highly qualified support from Rape Crisis South London. It is for female and non-binary survivors of sexual harassment, sexual abuse, sexual violence, sexual assault, and rape, it does not matter whether it is recent or historical. The support available is both emotional and practical, to support you through the mental and physical effects of sexual misconduct and reporting processes, if you choose to use them. This is not a counselling service, however the outreach workers will be able to signpost you to additional services you may need. 

In order to access it, all you need to do is email the RASASC outreach workers Abbie and Sarah via university.support@rasasc.org.uk and say you are from St George's. You will be able to receive up to 3 support sessions with an outreach worker, but you will be supporting in accessing additional specialist services depending on your needs. This is an external service so the only information SGUL and SGSU will receive about its usage is the number of students who have used it.
