student safety
 

Staying safe is a vital skill to have regardless of where you live but it is particularly important when living in or near a city. Manchester Student Homes aims to educate students on how to stay safe during your time in Manchester with a focus on the crimes students are particularly vulnerable to. This is done in partnership with Greater Manchester Police (GMP), Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS) , Manchester City Council (MCC) and the National Health Service (NHS).

Student Safety Campaigns include:
 

 

The Manchester International Student Safety Campaign was created following discussions with Greater Manchester Police (GMP) and international students. These discussions highlighted the crimes which international students were most likely to be victims of and identified the best methods of presenting our safety information. Following this MSH was awarded funding for the campaign from The UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) and the Manchester Student Safety Tactical Action Partnership.

The WOLF (Wary Of Light Fingers) campaign was created by Manchester Student Homes (MSH) in partnership with Greater Manchester Police and Manchester City Council, in order to raise awareness on issues relating to personal safety and household security.

MSH Sets Sights on Community Safety       6th June 2019

 

Manchester Student Homes teamed up with Greater Manchester Police and Manchester City Council’s Licensing and Out of Hours Team to co deliver a student safety stall in preparation for the Park Life weekend. Following MSH’s innovative and highly successful initiatives: Off-campus Ice Cream & Coffee safety vans, & the ‘Festive Countdown Calendar’s’ and safety fortune cookies throughout the year, the stall provided a welcoming reminder of the partnership service on personal safety and home security.

The stall was set up at the main entrance to Sainsbury’s, Fallowfield, on Thursday 6th June and was attended by PCSO Gosling, Manchester City Council’s Licensing & Out of House Compliance Neighbourhood Officer Mike Wilson, MSH Student Community Advisor James McNulty and MSH Community Cohesion Intern Luke Fisher.

The stall aimed to educate people on various safety precautions that can be taken over the Park Life weekend and end of term, and to remind students to be aware that they reside in a mix and diverse community and have a responsibility to their social behavior. The stall offered a range of leaflets and free items that students and long term residents could take away, including leaflets on safety and transient noise and community living, decks of cards, personal alarms, light timers and a historic tour guide map of Fallowfield/Withington. 

PCSO Gosling informed students and long-term residents on crime prevention whilst giving advice on property security and general safety throughout the weekend. This also provided an opportunity to signpost partnership services such as GMP’s Live Chat. Moreover, Manchester City Council’s Mike Wilson promoted the Licensing and Out of Hours service to long-term residents and students on issues to manage noise disturbances off campus, explaining that the service is there to protect all of the members of the community. Students take up use of this service more year on yrear. MSH is especially proud to work alongside the council and GMP on all aspects of off campus living.

The stall provided a great opportunity to speak with students about any considerations for safety during ParkLife, including alcohol and drugs awareness. MSH has been involved with the Alcohol Impact NUS sustainability campaign and delivered drug awareness campaigns with leading academics. The stall was well attended by students and long-term residents making it effective in communicating and reducing the apprehensions people had. We would like to thank Sainsbury’s for facilitating the stall and Manchester City Council and Greater Manchester Police for their attendance.

 

As with last year’s pre-Park Life safety stall, this was an incredibly successful event with positive feedback received from students, long-term residents and staff. Over 100 students and residents interacted with the stall who commended the presence of Manchester Student Homes, Manchester City Council and Greater Manchester Police to ease people’s concerns before one of the busiest weekends in Fallowfield and Withington.

MSH Community Cohesion Intern Luke Fisher said, “The stall provided a great opportunity to speak with students and long-term residents about housing and personal safety and transient noise in preparation for Park Life festival and student move out over summer. We interacted with over 100 students and long-term residents where we handed out a range of merchandise which prompted engaging discussions.”
