VAWG (The Violence against Women and Girls)

What is VAWG?

VAWG (The Violence against Women and Girls) is a group set up in a collaboration between the Falmouth and Exeter Students’ Union (SU) and Cornwall Council, in response to a successful funding bid by Cornwall Council to see a ‘Safer Cornwall’. Part of the funding included ringfencing £5000 for a student led group to deliberate and decide on projects, sessions or events that could improve the personal safety for the student community.

VAWG continues to hold regular meetings and pop ups on Social Street on Penryn Campus to continue promoting the group and hear from students.
