Respect. Now. Always.
At Swinburne, we are committed and fully support the Respect. Now. Always. national initiative. The initiative aims to prevent sexual violence in the university community and support the victim/survivor in a safe environment. Learn more about the support we offer if you, or someone you know, is affected by sexual assault or sexual harassment via our Safer Community team.
You decide whether you want to get support, make a report, or both.
A wide range of support services on and off campus are available. You can also choose to report directly or anonymously. Review some of your options here or contact Safer Community for assistance by emailing email@example.com or by reporting it online.
Reporting an incident ensures that victims of assault get the help they need. Looking out for one another by speaking up can save lives. If you experience, see or hear about behaviour that may be inappropriate, concerning or threatening you can report the incident to Safer Community by completing the Safer Community online form or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Safer Community offers advice, support, intervention and risk management for problem behaviours.
Note: Reports to Safer Community can be made anonymously.
24-hour campus security
If you're feeling unsafe, the Swinburne security team offers a free security escort service after hours. This means you can request a security officer to walk with you to your car, the train station or another part of campus.
