Unacceptable behaviour

Sexual harassment, racism and bullying are unacceptable. If you see or hear about such inappropriate behaviour, you should protect the victim and shield them from the situation.

You are not responsible for resolving the situation, especially if those involved are intoxicated.

Contact the person responsible for the event you are attending, they are there to to help you in difficult situations.

Sexual abuse

If you or someone you know has been a victim of sexual abuse, you should go to the nearest Sexual Assault Referral Centre. They provide medical help and advice.

You do not need a referral and it is free of charge. You will receive help regardless of whether you want to report the abuse to the police or not.

You can go there even if you are uncertain about what actually happened or if you cannot remember what happened.

Go there in person or call first and say it concerns sexual abuse. Then you will not have to go into details when you arrive.

It is better to go there immediately after the abuse has taken place. Remember not to wash your hands, change clothes, shower or brush your teeth. You should preferably not go to the toilet either.

Look after the person who has suffered the abuse and be there to support them if they want you to.
