View all of the various ways that you can report & discolusre incidents.

What ways can I report?

Are you a Newcastle University student who has experienced or witnessed Sexual Harassment, Sexual Violence, Hate Crime, Discrimination, Initiations, Domestic Abuse, or Bullying, perpetrated by a student, staff member, or member of the general public? This page offers all of the resources to disclose/report incidents or experiences - anonymously if needed*. Both the University & Students' Union have their own Report & Support services, and you can use whichever you are most comfortable with.

The Students' Union Report & Support form allows you to disclose or report incidents or experiences directly to the Student Advice Centre (a Service of the Students' Union). You will be given the opportunity to report with full disclosure, report anonymously, or request an appointment to talk to one of our trained Advisers, either in-person or via a video (or audio) call. 

Open Reporting Form

*Please note: We will be unable to take any action on anonymous disclosures, but it will help build a better picture of incidents happening around Newcastle. 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.

The University's Report and Support tool enables anyone to report concerns anonymously, receive support, and/or explore options for formal reporting directly through the University. You are able to report anonymously or request to speak to an advisor. For more information on this Service, follow the link below.

You may also prefer to report to the Police. This can be done alongside or instead of reporting the incident to us at Report and Support. 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.
