What happens when you contact someone at UNE for support

You are in control

We will listen to what you want and assist you as you wish.

We will not take any action unless you want us to — except if there is an immediate threat of danger to you or someone else.

We will put your safety first

We will do everything we can to make sure you are safe.

Sometimes we will need to take steps to ensure the safety of others as well. We will always try to discuss this with you.

We will assist you to get any help you may need and want including medical care, counselling and reporting to the police.

We will listen

We will ask what you need, what your immediate circumstances and concern/s are, and listen to what you have to say.

Whenever possible, we'll only ask you once to tell us what happened.

We will ask you what you think will help you

In order to help, we need to understand what’s important to you. We will give you as much information as possible so you can decide the best possible action for you, however we will need to know what’s most important so we can give you the right guidance. e.g. 'I want to feel safe when I come to class'.

We will explain and explore options

We will tell you what options are available, how they might help and what each path would look like for you. It’s up to you to decide which option is most appropriate for you.

Sometimes we will need to take steps to ensure the safety of others. We will always try to discuss this with you.

We will talk to you anonymously

If you do not want to tell us who you are, we can still give you as much information as possible to help you. However we can assist you better if you let us know who you are.
