Brief Description of Society Activities
It Happens Here works to support all survivors and allies on campus, and raise awareness of issues around sexual violence.
We provide talks, discussions, peer support groups, self care events, socials and self defence classes (externally).
We also run long and short term campaigns, our most recent won several awards including The Newcastle Pride Award, as well as being featured on the BBC.
