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 want to make sure you are able to access the support you need, even if you choose not to disclose using the system or decide not to leave your contact details at this time. 

If you are able to leave your contact email on this system, we will be better able to determine the most appropriate support for you, with you ultimately deciding for yourself how you would like to proceed. Submitting information on this system does not trigger a formal disciplinary process, or any other process. 

Even if you are unable to complete the questions in this disclosure system, or access any other support, at this point in time, you can still access the support you need at a later date before you leave the University. 

Once your disclosure is received a Case Worker will get in touch with you to meet and discuss your options further in person or remotely. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions and this support will continue with the Case Worker you initially speak to until you feel you have received all the support you need. 

Information about other reporting and support options can be found within the ‘Need Help’ section of the Studying at Leicester page and also on the Students’ Union Advice page. 

The support we can offer is listed below: 
  • We can provide information about specialist support services both within and outside of the University 
  • We can help you make contact with any support service you choose to engage with 
  • If you want us to, we can communicate with your academic department on your behalf to discuss your situation and ensure you are receiving the best support possible from School
  • We can help find solutions to other problems or issues you may be experiencing in your everyday life, regardless of whether this is directly related to the incident you have disclosed or not
