The University of Nottingham has always maintained a strong commitment to supporting and celebrating our diverse community. We want everyone to feel safe and welcome in Nottingham because it’s as much the person you know’s home as it is anyone else’s.
If you know someone who has been affected by a hate incident or hate crime, you can support them, and yourself, by seeking help.
What can you do?
What can you do?
- Are they in immediate danger? If you are in immediate danger or seriously injured, you can contact the emergency services on 999 (or 112 from a mobile phone) or if you are on campus, ring university Security Team 24/7 on the emergency number 0115 951 8888).
- Find a safe space. If an incident has just happened try and find somewhere you feel safe.
- Talk. If someone you know has been affected, you can encourage them to seek support. It is important to listen to what they want to do and respect the decision they make. If they don't want to seek support, or speak to an advisor, you can ask them if you can make an anonymous disclosure which will allow us to investigate if there are multiple instances in one area.
- Find out more. Nottinghamshire Police provides information on Hate Crime, support and reporting to the police.
