Consent Coalition (Nottingham)

Consent Coalition In February 2020 Nottingham launched the Consent Coalition. The Consent Coalition is a group of organisations who are working together to raise awareness of the importance of consent, banish myths about rape and sexual violence and encourage survivors to access support and report any sexual violence. Over 22 organisations currently support the Consent Coalition and in March 2021 Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust also joined the coalition.

The Consent Coalition is now nationally recognised as a best practice model of coordinated partnership work and the approach taken in Nottingham has set a precedent for other cities on how to successfully tackle sexual violence.
