Our Report + Support platform

Experiences of gender-based violence (GBV) can be reported through the University’s Report + Support platform, either anonymously or with your contact details so that we can offer direct support.

Please be aware that this is not a formal report to the University, but you will be contacted in confidence by a specialist member of the Equally Safe Team to discuss your situation, ensure your safety and wellbeing, and to discuss further options around reporting.

This platform is also an information resource on different forms of GBV. It provides useful advice, guidance and links to internal and external support services which you can access without making a report.
