If you are at risk of immediate harm or need urgent medical attention please call emergency services now on 999 if you are unable to speak during your call please use the ‘silent solution’ and press 55. The UK Government have stated you can leave your home to seek urgent assistance during lockdown.

The Mandala Project can signpost DMU Students towards practical support if you have experienced;  

  • Sexual violence, including rape and sexual assault 

  • Domestic violence including so called ‘honour crime’, forced marriage and coercive control 

  • Sexual harassment including stalking, unwanted contact, abusive language and behaviours on campus which create an intimidating environment

Please contact us by email to arrange your appointment. We aim to respond to your query as soon as possible, but in case of unforeseen delays please also follow up with the following options. 

In emergency situations call 999.

If you are in Leicestershire and have experienced a sexual assault within the last 7 days please call Juniper Lodge for advice on 0116 273 3330 as soon as you are able to. If you are not in Leicestershire, you can find details of a local Sexual Assault referral centre near to your home via the NHS website.

If you choose to contact the Mandala Project, our responders will discuss your options with you so that you can make decisions about the support you need. They can also outline your options to report to the police or make a formal report to DMU so that you can start internal disciplinary procedures if you decide that is what you would like to do.
