We aim to provide a safe and secure environment for the Curtin community. If you have any concerns about the safety, security and wellbeing of any member of our community, yourself or others, you can get help by advising our Safer Community Team.
The Safer Community Team is comprised of male and female staff who are trained to manage general safety issues and complex crisis issues such as physical and sexual assault. The team will offer immediate assistance in an emergency and ongoing safety and wellbeing support.
If you are not in immediate danger or have been physically or sexually assaulted in the past, the Safer Community Team can still help you get the right support, and formally report the incident if this is something you want to do.

In applicable situations, the Safer Community Team will advise the person involved of their options in terms of formally reporting the incident.
