In response to Government advice relating to the Covid-19 pandemic the Standing Together Team are currently providing remote support to students until further notice . You are still able to access advice and support through Microsoft Teams and via email and a Case Worker will work with you to deliver support in the most accessible way for you.

We are aware that many people will be at greater risk of abuse during the lockdown period and that many may be feeling unsafe isolating in a house at this time. If you are concerned about someone you know or if you are living with an abusive person, please download the free The Bright Sky app which enables users to locate their nearest support services by searching their area, postcode or current location. Please only download this app if it is safe to do so and you are sure that your mobile phone is not being monitored.

For out of hours support, you can register with Togetherall-they offer 24/7 online mental health support.

Please note that the staff side of the tool will be activated in due course, in the meantime, if you are a staff member and you have a concern regarding unacceptable behaviour you can contact the Dignity and Respect service.  Any disclosures received via this tool in relation to an identified staff member (with consent from the individual), will be re-directed to colleagues in HR. 
Students and staff at the University of Leicester are Standing Together to create an inclusive, respectful and safe campus for working, learning and studying.

Standing Together is a University-wide initiative improving wellbeing through tackling unacceptable behaviours and supporting students, and the wider University community, who are directly and indirectly affected. Standing Together engages all areas of the University including academic departments, Accommodation, the Students' Union, Security, Sports and Active Life, and, importantly, students.

We want all students to feel safe, happy and respected and we are here to provide support for when that doesn’t happen. Please submit your information on this disclosure system to let us know if you’ve witnessed or experienced something that distresses or concerns you. 

The Standing Together team is made up of male and female Case Workers who are trained in receiving disclosures and offering support. All Case Workers are trained Sexual Violence Liaison Officers (training by Lime Culture), and are also able to support students who have been subjected to any form of unacceptable behaviour. We also have close links with the Centre for Hate Studies in the School of Criminology.

Please also see our interactive leaflet for further information about our role.
