Due to Covid-19 Report and Support activities will be conducted through online channels.

If you are in immediate danger or are seriously injured, you can call 999 (or 112 from a mobile). For non-emergency calls, dial 101.
 
Answers to questions relating to Coronavirus (COVID-19) can be found on the University’s dedicated webpages: www.dur.ac.uk/coronavirus/
 
Please note that any individual who discloses an incident of bullying, harassment or sexual misconduct and violence will not be subject to disciplinary action by the University if they have engaged in behaviour in violation of the social distancing and public health measures taken in response to the COVID-19 pandemic at the time of the incident or events leading up to the incident. 
As the Covid-19 lockdown continues in the UK, there are those who are in isolation with abusive members of their households during this time. Lockdowns and restrictions on movement mean increased rates of violence, because people have no escape from those perpetrating abuse.

We would like to share some resources and information that may be useful for those for those who feel unsafe or are in this situation and for those who may be in contact with them:

 

If you find yourself in immediate danger call 999. If you’re in an emergency situation and need police help, but can’t speak call 999 wait for the operator then press 55 the operator will then transfer the call to the relevant police force as an emergency.
