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. 
Once your disclosure is received a Dignity and Respect Contact will get in touch with you to meet and discuss your options further in person or remotely.
The Contact Service is for members of staff and visitors who feel that they are have been subjected to unacceptable behaviours, such as bullying or harassment, or who are responding to complaints about unacceptable behaviours. Dignity and Respect Contacts provide staff with accurate information about relevant University, policies and procedures and the options available to them.

For more general information, please contact the Dignity and Respect Contact Service by emailing: dignityandrespect@leicester.ac.uk or visit the Dignity and Respect webpages.
