Sexual assault and sexual harassment can happen to anyone and we will support you without judgement.

We appreciate that every survivor will have individual circumstances and identifying factors that influence their experience. The trauma-informed approach adopted by the University commits to supporting survivors holistically, informed by their life experiences including gender, age, sexuality, religion, or any other identifying factor. 

We are working with internal and external support groups to ensure vulnerable groups can access appropriate support and guidance.

We encourage you to also seek guidance from external community groups to find a support service that feels right for you.
