Student Support is running workshops in Bystander Intervention training during the spring term
Bringing in the Bystander® is a bystander intervention workshop with a robust evidence-base.
Rather than focusing strictly on the roles of perpetrator and victim, the highly interactive Bringing in The Bystander® curriculum uses a community responsibility approach. It teaches bystanders how to safely intervene in instances where sexual violence, relationship violence or stalking may be occurring or where there may be a risk that it will occur.

These workshops will help students, academics, professional services staff and community members to:
