First responders

First Responders are members of the UniSA community who, as part of their substantive role, are a first point of contact for anyone who has been subjected to sexual assault or sexual harassment.  First Responders are specially trained to provide you with information on the support services and reporting options available to you.  They understand that reporting sexual assault or sexual harassment can be difficult and they will listen to your concerns without judgement and guide you to the right services.  They will respect your right to choose services and whether to make a formal report to the university or the police. 

If you are in immediate danger, contact the police on 000, Campus security on 1800 500 911 or the National Sexual, Domestic and Family Violence Counselling Service (1800 RESPECT) on 1800 737 732 (24 hours a day/7 days a week).

It is very important that, where urgent medical or other help and support is needed, you do not wait for a response to a phone call or e-mail.  For example, it may be necessary for you to contact the Police, or an ambulance, immediately after a serious incident occurs.  See Emergency Help for more information.
