Family Violence- It's Not OK Project at the University
Family and relationship violence is abuse by someone close to us, such as a partner, family member or flatmate.
Family and relationship violence can be experienced by anyone.
Family and relationship violence can take many forms, including physical, psychological, sexual, financial or spiritual abuse. It can disrupt the ability to study or work and can negatively affect performance, effectiveness, safety and wellbeing. It can also impact colleagues, friends and other members of the University community.
We are committed to being safe, inclusive and equitable. We affirm that family and relationship violence is unacceptable and that every person is entitled to respect, and to live free from fear and abuse.
