SVLO LimeLight Awards 2019 – Nominations now open!

LimeCulture are delighted to share with you details of our LimeLight Awards to be presented at our SVLO Conference on 10th December 2019, Woburn House, London.

The LimeLight Awards are being introduced for the first time for qualified Sexual Violence Liaison Officers (Sexual Violence & Misconduct Liaison Officers in Scotland) working in universities and HEIs with the aim of acknowledging the outstanding contributions and achievements of individual SVLOs/SVMLOs, SVLO/SVMLO Teams and SVLO/SVMLO Managers. LimeCulture are keen to celebrate the excellence, dedication and commitment to supporting victims of sexual violence demonstrated by SVLOs and SVMLOs through their work.

There are 3 LimeLight Awards:

  • Award for an individual SVLO/SVMLO
  • Award for a SVLO/SVMLO Team
  • Award for a SVLO/SVMLO Manager

By the end of 2019, we will have supported more than 200 SVLOs and SVMLOs from 44 different universities to complete our accredited SVLO/SVMLO Development Programme and work within their universities to deliver high-quality, independent and professional support services to students reporting sexual violence within universities. We have been delighted to see the increase in the number of universities adopting the SVLO/SVMLO model.  With this increase, we are also seeing universities commit to provision of high-quality, innovative, professional services that meet the complex needs of the people who use the services.

LimeCulture’s view is that SVLOs/SVMLOs and their services deserve to be properly recognised for the important, challenging and professional work they do to support those who have experienced sexual violence.  The LimeLight Awards are intended to be a first step in the direction of professional recognition of SVLOs and SVMLOs and their services.

This year’s LimeLight Awards will be presented at our inaugural SVLO Conference ‘The Sexual Violence Liaison Officer Model: Sharing the Learning and Enabling Progress’ on 10th December 2019 at Woburn House, 20 Tavistock Square, London, WC1H 9HQ.

Why enter?

Winning an award will bring unparalleled recognition for the teams and individuals behind the outstanding achievements.  You or your nominee will benefit from national publicity, recognition for being the best in your field and the chance to share best practice.

If you know a SVLO or SVMLO, a team of SVLOs/SVMLOs or a SVLO/SVMLO manager that you think are deserving of an award, why not nominate them?  Perhaps you have been doing some exciting and innovative work with the people you work with? If so, why not nominate your own team for an award?

How to enter?

The nomination for any LimeLight Award can be submitted between Wednesday 18th September and Friday 1st November 2019
