Together we can help to prevent rape by ensuring that everyone knows when they have obtained sexual consent – and when they have not.
Rape occurs in all genders and sexualities and most rapes occur between people who know each other in some way.
If you have been affected by rape and would like to seek support, you can contact the Wellbeing team on 01772 893020 or Wellbeing@uclan.ac.uk. You may also wish to view the support pages for Sexual Assault on UCLan's Report and Support site.
Report and Support
If you or someone you know has experienced a sexual assault, you can use the University’s Report and Support system. This allows you to report something anonymously, or report it and get confidential support from a Wellbeing Advisor. Please be reassured that this is purely a supportive measure and is aimed at ensuring that you feel supported when making such a disclosure, should you wish to make a report. There is no pressure to make a formal report to the university's complaints department or the Police; the advisor will explain your options and support you in whichever decision you make.
