Safer Community is a Deakin wide service which aims to keep all campuses safe. We respond to all reports of behaviour which are concerning, inappropriate or threatening and offer support to all parties involved. If you are worried about someone or something just doesn’t feel quite right, please contact us for support, advice or information.
The service aims to empower the Deakin community with the skills and knowledge to keep themselves safe.
If you feel threatened or unsafe, are worried about someone harming themselves of someone else or something doesn’t feel right, contact us.
It can be pretty full on when someone tells you they have been sexually assaulted. You'll probably have feelings of your own to deal with. The good news is that the survivor trusts you, and there are lots of things you can do to support them.
Deakin is determined to ensure that our students and staff are safe from sexual assault and sexual harassment.
In 2015 Deakin held a range of activities on White Ribbon Day to initiate discussion and encourage reflection on the impact and cost of violence to ourselves, our family, our friends and our community.
