This online form allows you to report something anonymously. Whilst we will not be able to offer direct advice or begin an official support and/or complaints process, your report will help us to get a picture of what is happening and consider the sort of support and/or actions we might need to take to protect our university population.

 

The information you provide in this report will remain confidential. If you would prefer, you can report something and speak confidentially to a Student Wellbeing Advisor or Human Resources for staff. If you choose to report anonymously you will not be asked to provide your name or contact details. You will be asked for information relating to your age, ethnicity etc. which is for monitoring purposes only. You have the option to select 'prefer not to say' for each of these questions.

 

NOTE: The UCLan Students' Union Advice and Representation Centre is a designated third party Hate Crime reporting centre where staff, students and members of the public can make a report. All reports of Hate Crime will be anonymised before being shared with the Students' Union Advice and Representation Centre so that the incidents can be included in their monitoring and reporting.

Sexual assault is any type of sexual activity or contact that you do not consent to. Sexual assault can happen through physical force or threats of force or if the attacker gave the victim drugs or alcohol as part of the assault. Sexual assault includes rape and sexual coercion.

Unlawful discrimination takes place when an individual or a group of people is treated less favourably than others based on one of the nine protected characteristics in the Equality Act (2010). These are age, disability, gender, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief (including lack of belief), and sexual orientation.

A hate crime or incident is a criminal offence targeted at a person because of hostility or prejudice towards a person’s actual or perceived;

  • Disability
  • Race or ethnicity
  • Religion or belief
  • Sexual orientation
  • Transgender identity

This can be committed against a person or property. The victim does not have to define into any of these groups but the perception that they do must exist for it to be a hate crime with an element of hostility or prejudice.

Don't forget that the UCLan Students' Union Advice and Representation Centre is a third party hate crime reporting centre. We will make them aware when a Hate Crime is reported and you may wish to access support through them.
