Graeme Young - Accommodation Operations Manager
I wanted to join the SVMLO team so that I can provide the best possible support to students and staff who have been affected by sexual violence. It is important that those affected by sexual violence know that we are here, we will listen to them and help them get the support they need.
Sandy Gillone - Head of Operations/Deputy Head of Accommodation Services
The SVMLO training has improved the ways in which I can support students and staff who have been affected by sexual violence. I want them to know that, like all of the SVMLOs, I will listen to them and help them get the support they need.
Jill Stevenson - Head of Student Support Services
I have been leading the University’s strategy to prevent and tackle sexual violence for over three years, and I am really passionate about ensuring that our university is a place where anyone affected by sexual or gender based violence can feel comfortable to come forward, report it and access support, safe in the knowledge that they will be believed. Being trained as a SVMLO has also helped me to understand what more we can do as a university to work with our partners to strengthen the support framework for students and staff.
Erin Russell - Acting Head of Student Guidance and Wellbeing
I want to ensure that if you have experienced sexual violence that you feel supported, informed, respected and above all else, in control of what happens next for you. I have worked in a student support advisory role for over ten years, and as a trained SVMLO, I can help you explore your support options, and help reduce the impact this experience may have had on your studies.
Liz Watson - HR Partner
As an experienced Human Resources Partner I believe that giving me the opportunity to undertake SVMLO training shows the University’s support for the Preventing and Tackling Sexual Violence and Misconduct Strategy and will hopefully give our staff and students confidence that they will be given support in a professional and confidential manner. It’s important that anyone affected by these issues should know that we will listen to them without any judgement and be able to offer them appropriate support.
Jennifer Paton - Head of HR Partnering
Working in HR, it was important for me to participate in the SVMLO training and to join the SVMLO team as I am committed to the University’s strategy for preventing sexual violence and misconduct. I want to ensure that staff and students affected by sexual violence and misconduct receive the best support possible and are provided with information on their options. I want anyone affected by sexual violence to know that we will help them get the support they need.
