“Safe Spaces” zeroes in on the critical issue of sexual safety within healthcare settings, with a special focus on interactions between doctors, staff members, and trainees. This workshop is grounded in the principles of the Sexual Safety Charter, aiming to empower participants with the understanding, skills, and courage to act as active bystanders who can effectively identify, prevent, and address inappropriate behaviours.


  1. Core Principles of the Sexual Safety Charter: An overview of the charter’s guidelines and how they apply to everyday interactions within healthcare settings.

  2. Active Bystander Training: Equipping participants with the skills to recognise and challenge sexual misconduct safely and effectively.

  3. Creating Safe Environments: Strategies for developing workspaces where everyone feels secure and valued, focusing on prevention and response to sexual safety breaches.

  4. Effective Response Strategies: How to respond to disclosures of sexual misconduct with sensitivity and support, ensuring appropriate actions are taken.

  5. Fostering a Culture of Respect: Building a community within healthcare that prioritises consent, mutual respect, and professionalism among all staff and trainees.

  6. Interactive Scenarios: Engaging exercises to practice the principles of active bystander intervention and apply them in realistic situations.
