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. 
We are committed to ensuring that ours is an inclusive learning, working and research environment where all students, staff and visitors are treated with dignity and respect.

The Dignity and Respect at Leicester Policy and associated documents outline, with clear definitions and examples, what unacceptable behaviours are and the processes in place to address, deal with and report them.

Each member of the University community is expected to:

  • Behave with respect and courtesy at all times
  • Contribute to ensuring that the University is welcoming and safe
  • Ensure that their behaviour is not offensive, and is free from harassment, bullying, abuse and discrimination.
