Learning about Consent

This page includes two short videos and a useful article to introduce consent and encourage you to consider how you think about consent. Each only takes a few minutes but can help you feel more confident in understanding what consent is. 

This page also includes links to free Consent Matters training and support available if you are affected by anything discussed in these videos.
