This HEFCE-funded project is addressing on-campus concerns about sexual violence, abuse, harassment and hate. Research suggests that these incidences are prevalent within Higher Education (HE), but limited research focuses on HE institutions within the UK. Through a range of collaborative activities and the creation of best practice, our New Spaces project aims to understand perceptions of on-campus spaces, by those using them. Staff and students are contributing to this research through a range of creative methods, for example, through photo-elicitation, as demonstrated in these images. This project will enhance and extend existing safeguarding policies and practices, including staff and student resources, training and more effective reporting, investigation and support mechanisms. Our work is informed by and created in partnership with students and will provide recommendations for our safe new campus context.
