If you are not in immediate danger, currently feel safe from harm and do not need to report an emergency - then speaking to someone about your options is a great place to start.
- Report and Support: If you submit a report with details, a specially trained Liaison Officer will be in touch within 2 University Working Days. Your disclosure will not trigger a formal complaints process, and the Liaison Officer can confidentially speak to you about both your reporting and support options. You will never be forced to submit a report to the police, a Formal Complaint to the University or a Grievance to HR- as this is your choice.
- Sexual and Domestic Violence Advisor: The University's SDVA is a member of the Wellbeing Team and is available to support students who have been affected by sexual violence and relationship abuse. The SDVA is available to provide confidential emotional support.
- Safeline: is a specialised charity working to prevent sexual abuse and to support those affected in their recovery.
- National Domestic Violence Helpline: Call them, 24-hours a day, for free and in confidence. You can also chat to them online throughout selected times.
- The National Association for People Abused in Childhood (NAPAC): provides a national freephone support line for adults who have suffered any type of abuse in childhood.
