The Standing Together Team will work with you to deliver support in the most accessible way for you.  We are currently providing remote and face to face appointments to students.

Please note the University of Leicester will be closed for the Easter break from Thursday 14th April and reopen on Wednesday 20th April. We will respond to any named disclosures when the University reopens. If you require support during this period of time you can contact one of the many organisations available in the community 

For out of hours support you can visit our support pages which has a range of support options in the local community.
There are many commonly-held myths and misconceptions around hate crime and hate incidents. These can lead to an increased prevalence of these instances, poor support for victim/ survivors, and/ or incorrect outcomes in formal reporting procedures.

Here are some common myths and misconceptions, and the truths to provide the correct information. See our Twitter feed (@UniOfLeics_ST) for more. Email us on standingtogether@le.ac.uk if you have any more you'd like us to include.

Myth: It happens too often to report each one

Fact: Each and every hate incident and hate crime is one too many. The Police want to hear every time you are a victim. Each offence will be logged and will receive a police response

Fact: Hate crimes are not just incidents of racial intolerance, but also include religious discrimination, homophobic and transphobic abuse, disability hate crime and more recently, crimes against older people

Fact: Although hate crimes seem to be on the rise, many hate crimes go unreported to the police
