I’ve been harassed or discriminated against because of my identity or protected characteristic – what can I do?

Guidance for students who have been harassed or discriminated against because of their identity or protected characteristic.

We will not tolerate hateful behaviour, discrimination, or harassment of any kind in our University Community. If this has happened to you, you can get free, confidential support from our Survivor Support Service. A member of our team will listen to what has happened in as much detail as you feel comfortable sharing and give you information about your formal reporting and support options.

You can find out more about our Survivor Support Service here, and you can disclose and seek help using our online Disclosure and Referral Form. If you have any queries before using the online form you can email survivorsupport@ncl.ac.uk and a member of our team will get back to you.

  • For non-emergency situations which require support from the Police dial 101
  • You can contact the University’s Security Service on 0191 208 6817 (24/7)
