Information and Support

We acknowledge that the impacts and experience of SASH/sexual misconduct and other inappropriate behaviour can be far reaching. The University is committed to making information and/or support available to you or others you may be supporting within the University community. 


For staff 

For information on options available to you if you feel you or others have been discriminated against, experienced or witnessed any form of sexual misconduct or other inappropriate behaviour such as bullying, you can discuss this with your line manager or supervisor, or contact a Fair Treatment Contact Officer (FTCO). Further information on what an FTCO is can be found on the HSW webpage.

For support, you can access confidential counselling support through the University's Employee Assistance Program. 

Add information in here on accessing support from line managers and HR. There may also be others.


For students 

Information and support for students are outlined in detail on the Safer Campus Community website.


Within the broader community 

Lifeline  and BeyondBlue  offer 24/7 crisis support by phone, text and online chat. 

Additional programs available include:

  • Yarrow Place (a service for anyone who has been sexually assaulted)
  • Uniting Communities (an inclusive not-for-profit organisation that provides respectful, accessible services, supporting people to overcome adversity and disadvantage)

If this is an emergency, please use the appropriate emergency contacts.
