You can also contact Queensland Police who can support victim/survivors of sexual assault in two ways.
- You can complete an alternative reporting option where you can stay anonymous and share as much information as you are comfortable with the police. The police will not investigate or start any court or judicial processes. They will keep the information on file and may use some information in other prosecutions against an offender.
- You can complete a sexual assault online form which will be investigated by the police and may result in court and judicial processes. You can also report sexual assaults over the phone or in person at your local police station.
UniSQ aspires to an organisational climate where all employees feel confident and comfortable about raising concerns or making legitimate and grounded complaints. Employees wishing to raise a concern about behaviour they have observed, witnessed or experienced, relating to sexual assault or harassment, should contact the People Partner team in the People Portfolio and consult the complaint management framework.
