The Mandala Project and De Montfort Students’ Union (DSU) are working in partnership to offer a 1-hour virtual weekly drop in session every Wednesday from 21 October at 1pm-2pm. The 1-hour session will offer you 1:1 time with a trained adviser.
If you feel that you’re in an unhealthy relationship or still feel affected by something that happened in a relationship a while ago, this session may be useful for you.
As well as the issues above, we can offer the usual Mandala support during drop in if you have experienced;
- Sexual violence, including rape and sexual assault
- Domestic abuse 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
To make an appointment at the DSU session please call us on 0116 255 5576.
Please do not wait for the DSU drop in to access urgent support. If you are in an emergency situation and need support call 999 now.
If you are in Leicestershire and have experienced a sexual assault or rape 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.
Outside of DMU, UAVA offer residents of Leicestershire a helpline from 8am-8pm Monday to Saturday on 0808 80 200 28 and can advise regarding any aspect of recent or historic sexual violence, domestic violence or ‘honour’ abuse. UAVA can refer you to local specialist services tailored to your situation.

Mandala offers appointments and phone advice Monday to Friday 9am-5pm when DMU is open. To make an appointment directly with the team, call on 0116 207 8309 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
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.??
