Meredith Graham started this petition to Oxford Brookes University

Say it Loud (a sexual violence support group) was made this year by Meredith Graham after she felt that Brookes students, in particular, were not being supported or encouraged to speak out about their sexual trauma while at university. The Say it Loud team strongly believe that the Brookes well-being team should have a higher level of training in sexual trauma. This involves: being able to support those who have experienced sexual violence, being able to support them in telling loved ones what has happened to them, signposting them to appropriate crisis teams (not just the same services each time) as well as being able to support an individual in processing sexual trauma. 

 

As of right now, all of the well-being team have stated they have training from OSARCC, however, this is the same level of training that the Say it Loud team has. Some Brookes well-being staff have stated that Say it Loud should be facilitated by someone who has a high level of training in sexual trauma, however as said before, this is the same training that the well-being team has, thus, making them an inappropriate team to be giving support to individuals of sexual violence. 

We believe there should be at least one person who is specialised in sexual trauma which is why we are petitioning for Brookes to hire someone who is.
