Prevent and address harassment and sexual misconduct

Resources for higher education providers

The sector has developed many useful resources which universities and colleges may find helpful in the development of their own work to prevent and address harassment and sexual misconduct. We will update this page as new materials become available.

Many of the projects from the Catalyst Student Safeguarding Programme have produced valuable resources, which universities and colleges may find useful in developing their own approaches to addressing sexual misconduct, hate crime and online harassment.

These resources include training materials, guidance and reporting and supporting tools. See the full list of resources.
