The Safer Community Unit focuses on early identification of observable behaviour that presents a risk to the safety and wellbeing of self or others.
Staff from the Safer Community Unit provide information, advice, support, and (where necessary) intervention for both those impacted by and demonstrating the concerning behaviour.
The Safer Community Unit provides an investigation, risk management and coordination role to reduce the risk to staff, students and the organisation of inappropriate, concerning and threatening behaviour. This is done in collaboration with a multi-disciplinary team and in accordance with current research, best practice, University policy and procedures.
We can offer advice and support on any concerning behaviour including sexual offences and do so within a victim-focused and self-determination framework.
We also lead a range of programs and initiatives to create and maintain a safe community at Monash.
If you're feeling threatened or unsafe, please contact us.
