Harassment

Forms of harassment can include bullying, stalking, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, relationship abuse and more. At Pembroke, harassment is taken very seriously, and the welfare of victims is a priority.

Much of the below advice and information has been borrowed from the Oxford University Student Union webpage on Harassment & Abuse.

 

REPORTING TO POLICE

  • Your approach to dealing with harassment is your own choice, but if you would like to contact the police you are encouraged to do so.

  • Sexual Abuse, Sexual Harassment, Discrimination and Stalking are crimes and can at any time be reported to the police.

  • Call 999 for emergencies, or 101 for non-emergencies. If you are frightened, the police can help you.

 

SOLACE - SEXUAL ASSAULT REFERRAL CENTRES

  • Solace centres are sexual assault referral centres where a number of experienced specialists and professionals can offer you support and advice, inluding doctors and counsellors.
