#emilytest: Support students affected by gender-based violence
27/10/18 We won
A new resource to help staff support victims of gender based violence has been introduced in all Scottish colleges and universities.
The project has seen more than 100,000 cards distributed to every college and university detailing specialist services so that staff can deal with disclosures of violence against women and girls.
The idea for the cards came from Fiona Drouet, mother of Emily Drouet, who took her own life after experiencing a campaign of gender based violence whilst at university.
