Are you a Newcastle University student or applicant who has experienced or witnessed Sexual Harassment, Sexual Violence, Hate Crime, Discrimination or Bullying, perpetrated by a student, staff member or member of the general public? You can disclose/report this via our ‘It Happens Here’ disclosure/report form.
When submitting the ‘It Happens Here’ disclosure/report form, you have two options:
- The first option is to disclose to NUSU’s independent Student Advice Centre (SAC) anonymously. We will be unable to take any action on anonymous disclosures, but it will help us build a better picture of incidents happening around Newcastle.
- The second option is to request an appointment with the Student Advice Centre (SAC).
If you would like support from the SAC, you will be asked to provide details to allow the SAC to contact you to arrange an appointment.
You may also prefer to report to the Police. This can be done alongside or instead of reporting the incident to us at It Happens Here. If do you choose to report to the Police, please note: the Police are duty bound to record and investigate complaints of criminal activity and it will greatly assist the Police if you could provide as much detail as possible. If you would wish to stay anonymous when you report, please report the incident via Crimestoppers.
All submissions are anonymous; however, the discloser’s details may be uncovered in exceptional circumstances where there is a safeguarding risk to themselves or others.
