Equally Safe in Higher Education Equally Safe in Higher Education (ESHE) Toolkit

Welcome to the Equally Safe in Higher Education Toolkit - a free resource for Scottish universities working to prevent gender-based violence (GBV) on their campuses.

The Equally Safe in Higher Education (ESHE) Toolkit was created at the University of Strathclyde by the ESHE Project team and was funded by the Scottish Government.  The ESHE Toolkit provides a practical collection of free materials and resources developed specifically for Scottish universities which can be used as they are or adapted to suit individual institutions.  

By navigating across the links, you will have access to a range of information and resources to expand and develop your institution’s response to GBV. The ESHE Toolkit covers research, policy, response, primary prevention, intervention, curriculum and knowledge exchange. 

Information about what is in the ESHE Toolkit and how to use it can be found in the links to the ESHE Toolkit Guidance and Checklist and the ESHE Research Toolkit below.
