HandsOff LSE are a student campaign working hard to combat sexual harassment and violence on campus. No one should have to feel unsafe on campus, and we have worked closely with the School to improve the process of reporting sexual misconduct and introducing a successful flagship consent education programme. We are especially proud of our work last year, which includes:
Raising over £3000 for Rape Crisis UK by hosting LSE’s first ever HandsOff LSE x AU Fundraising Sports Night
Campaigning for, developing, and delivering the SU’s Flagship Consent Ed Programme
Successfully lobbying the school to hire a Sexual Violence Advisor, to provide specialised support for survivors
Receiving disclosure training to better support students who reach out to HandsOff
AU x HandsOff Pledges
Numerous events including campaign workshops, survivor-only groups, anti-spiking discussions and team socials
We welcome everyone to get involved and support our work! Join our Whatsapp Group & please feel free to reach out to us on Instagram to keep up to date with our events.
We are very proud of what we have achieved over the past few years, and are hoping to build on it this academic year through:
Continuing to fight to improve LSE’s process for reporting sexual misconduct based on care and proactivity
Further integrating the role of LSE’s Sexual Violence Advisor and working closely with her to increase her presence and impact on campus
Improving the provision of information for students considering reporting and/or disclosing
Safe Contacts in every department
Training for all decision-makers in sexual misconduct cases
Open up the conversation around sexual violence
Continue fundraising for relevant charities
Working closely with the AU to overcome sexual misconduct risks within Sports Societies
Campaigning to continue improving and developing the Consent Ed Programme
