Deakin: promoting and supporting a safe and respectful community for all

Everyone has the right to live, work and study in a safe and supportive environment. At Deakin, we want everyone to feel safe, respected and included while part of our community. 

As part of this commitment, we offer a range of services, resources, training and referrals to empower and support our community. 

During your time at Deakin, Safer Community is here to support you if you experience or witness any of these types of behaviour, including family violence, sexual harm and/or behaviours of concern. This free and confidential service can help you to develop a safety plan, if appropriate, and provide advice and referrals to other services. 

Other Deakin support services include:

Our community’s wellbeing, safety and support is our priority. We continue to improve our programs and support services, and our education and awareness, to build a strong and supportive Deakin community that can positively impact the broader society that we serve.
