  Safety first
 
If someone is in immediate danger or seriously injured call 999 and ask for the appropriate responders

If you are on Newcastle University Campus, inform Newcastle University Security about what has happened using the Safe Zone app or by calling 0191 208 6666.

You have a number of options if you have experienced a hate crime or hate incident whilst studying or working at the University.

1. Report to the Police
 
If you, or somebody you know, has been or is currently experiencing a hate crime or hate incident but is not in immediate danger, you can report it to the Police by calling 101 or go to your local Police station. 
 
You can also report this to our campus police officer, PC Michael Miller (collar ID 8964)
 
The police will investigate the allegation and ensure that you are safeguarded. They will also link you to the appropriate local and national support services.
 
When it comes to reporting, remember the choice is yours; no one should pressure you into any decision or action. You do not have to report to the Police to receive support and guidance from us.

 2. Report anonymously to the University
 
Our online Report and Support Tool enables students and colleagues to report concerns about all forms of hate crime, sexual violence, and harassment anonymously. Whether you experienced this directly, witnessed an incident, or heard through a third party, our report and support tool will record the incident and inform our preventative work. Our community is an environment where prejudice and socially unacceptable behaviour are never tolerated. 

3.  Report and Receive support from the University
 
If you would like to receive support from the University, students and colleagues can use Report and Support, and click 'Speak to an advisor'. If you click 'Speak to an advisor' we will take your name and contact details, so that we can get in touch with you to discuss your needs. We will respond to your report within 2 working days.

For students, you will be contacted by our Hate Crime and Sexual Violence Prevention team, or a colleague in the Student Health and Wellbeing Service. They will provide practical and emotional support, along with information about further options available. They will also link you with other teams who can take action to help with other areas of need, such as studies and living accommodation.

If you are a colleague, reporting an incident related to the behaviour of another colleague, the complaint will be investigated under the Colleague Disciplinary Policy and Procedure which is available here. Colleagues and Post Graduate students can access support through our Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)
