A Safer Community at Holmesglen

The Safer Community team at Holmesglen is made up of Student Wellbeing employees. We offer advice, support, intervention and risk management for students who have experienced or witnessed inappropriate, concerning or threatening behaviour. We aim to identify problem behaviour early to lower risks to the safety and wellbeing of yourself and others.

Inappropriate, concerning or threatening behaviour includes any behaviour that:

  • Makes you feel threatened or unsafe in or out of the class environment
  • Causes you concern about a person harming themselves or someone else
  • Makes you feel uneasy or get the sense that something is not quite right
