In recognition of the escalating violence in Israel and Palestine, we wanted to remind all students that your safety is a priority to The SU.
We wish to state that there is no place for hate in our community, and that we all have a role to play in standing against all forms of hate.
The following information includes how to report abuse in our community and support available over the weekend.
In light of the ever-changing situation, we will share more information on Monday with further wellbeing advice and guidance.
How to report discrimination
We urge anyone who has witnessed or experience any form of abuse to use the Speak Out tool to report incidents.
The Penryn campus Safety and Support Team are available 24/7. You can contact them on 01326 254444.
You can also contact security directly through the SafeZone app. The app is available to all Falmouth and Exeter students and makes it easier for you to contact Security directly from your phone.
Remember: if you are in an emergency, call 999 and ask for the appropriate service.
Support for students over the weekend
The Community Security Trust (CST) has published a number of resources on their social media feeds. CST also has a national emergency number which should be used to report antisemitic attacks, alongside calling 999: 0800 032 3263.
Tell Mama is a confidential support service for those suffering from anti-Muslim hate and discrimination across the UK. Their website features a number of different ways to report anti-Muslim incidents, including via phone or WhatsApp, alongside calling 999: Report in Anti-Muslim Hate or Islamophobia (tellmamauk.org).
These events can be extremely traumatic for people around the world. If you feel like you need mental health support, Samaritans have free resources and a phone line to talk to someone you can talk to.
The SU is open from Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm as a space for all students. Whether you need space to reflect or decompress, please come and use the space that is dedicated to you. Our sabbatical officers are ready to listen and talk with you.
