national personal safety day

 

On 5th October 2017 we marked National Personal Safety Day by handing out safety information and free materials to students. We had a stall at the University of Manchester’s Owens Park Campus along with Greater Manchester Police to raise awareness surrounding personal safety and property security. The materials included light timers, tin food cans that are used as a safe for valuables and community playing cards with safety messages. Overall we gave information and advice to more than 150 students!

National Personal Safety Day was just one of several events held in partnership with Greater Manchester Police, and together we have been very busy welcoming students to the community from the start of the semester. This isn’t the last of our safety stalls, we will be holding them throughout the semester in various locations both on and off campus.

grand opening of the student community hub (owens park campus)

 

On 16th September 2016 Manchester Student Homes was joined by Greater Manchester Police and Manchester City Council for the official opening of the Student Community Hub at The University of Manchester’s Owens Park Campus. 


The Hub will be open to students and staff to receive a range of information on various topics including advice on staying safe, housing and alcohol related issues. The Hub will be open throughout the year and will be a base for partnership agencies to promote specific events and campaigns on campus, such as National Personal Safety Day on 5th October 2016.

Manchester Student Homes will continue to work in partnership with colleagues from Greater Manchester Police, Manchester City Council and the Residential Life Team to make sure this service is available on an ongoing basis and that students have access to timely and relevant information.

MSH will also use this hub as a platform to promote Halls 2 Home, the flagship Manchester campaign which supports students from their time in halls to living out in the community.

Discussing Halls 2 Home, Cooper Healey, Manager of Manchester Student Homes, advised: “We’re delighted to have a partnership presence and to be working with the newly established Residential Life Team to promote Halls 2 Home, we understand that this campaign is fundamental to enhancing the student experience”.

Sergeant Danny O’Neil, Greater Manchester Police for Fallowfield and Withington, added: “We are very excited to be providing another means of support to students, and are delighted that we have another opportunity to work with many teams to offer a strong and consistent message of safety”.

wolf 

 

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. 

As part of this campaign, MSH has created a variety of promotional material to highlight safety messages, so that students are continuously reminded of this issue. The WOLF campaign includes temporary tattoos, masks, sweet boxes, logo bugs, and wristbands. Manchester Student Homes have also encouraged students to upload ‘selfies’ to our social media in order to promote awareness of safety issues under the #WOLFIE.

Student safety forms a key component of the MSH led Halls 2 Home campaign that supports students in the transition from Halls of Residence to living in off campus communities.

This is a really fun and memorable campaign that raises awareness about really serious issues
-    Ali Pearson, Masters Student, the University of Manchester

MSH also promotes the WOLF campaign through stalls that are located both on and off campus. The most recent event was held on 5th October to celebrate National Personal Safety Day and provided the opportunity for hundreds of students to receive freebies as well as advice and guidance on how to stay safe during their time in Manchester. 

By engaging with the students directly we believe that this campaign can bring substantial change to the levels of knowledge regarding personal protection. Manchester Student Homes have received a large amount of feedback already and our campaign has been welcomed by students. We have been afforded the opportunity to help students within the heart of the community, and we are delighted by the ability and expertise that our partners provide”

First WOLF Campaign

 

The ‘WOLF’ campaign is the safety element of our Halls 2 Home Project and focuses on educating students on personal safety both on and off campus. MSH has designed 4 mediums of promotional merchandise: WOLFIE themed masks and hand stamps reminding students to be careful when using ATM machines; WOLFIE logo bugs advising students not to walk home alone and finally mobile phone themed mint boxes that contain information and a link to the Immobilise website. This is where you can register your electrical goods.

Throughout April, MSH in partnership with Greater Manchester Police (GMP) has held safety stalls at Manchester Metropolitan University, The University of Manchester and Sainsbury’s Fallowfield. At these stalls, we distributed the WOLFIE promotional merchandise along with providing safety advice and guidance. The events were a huge success and enjoyed by both students and staff alike! Our mascot Wolfie attracted a lot of attention and we managed to capture a few of those moments below. We would like to thank everyone who took part and remember to stay wary of light fingers!

For more information about the WOLF campaign or our other projects please email Josh (Community Cohesion Intern) at brett.langsdale@manchester.ac.uk.

national personal safety day / a thank you to Sainsbury's

 

On the 7th of October, it was National Safety Day.   The day is organised by the Suzy Lamplugh Trust and is a day to highlight solutions to avoid violence. This year’s Safety Day Theme was “Keep it real”.  Be Ready, Educate yourselves, Be Alert, Stay Legal. National Safety Day was created to highlight personal safety inside and outside of the home concentrating on issues such as safety on a night out and safety on the streets.

National Personal Safety Day

Over the last few weeks, we have been welcoming students to the community by working with Greater Manchester Police and Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service. We held stalls in the Sainsburys Fallowfield foyer to talk to community members about our Neighbour Helpline, which an answering machine service available for residents and students, to report any issues relating to students in the community. If you have any issues yourself call 0161 275 1863.

Greater Manchester Police encouraged students on the day to register their electrical goods to Immbolize, especially their mobile phones. MP also gave away lots of safety freebies from safety alarms, light timers and other merchandise with safety messages. We hope that this will always remind students to be careful and more aware for their own safety. Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service talked to the community about making sure they had alarms fitted and reminding them that the GMFRS has a free checking service, whereby someone from the Fire and Rescue Service can come round to check or fit a new fire alarm.  The joint partnership ensured that we effectively informed students about how to stay safety both inside and outside of the home. This was done at the start of the academic year to target students when they first move into the area. We have had very good feedback from students and local residents and would like to thank Sainsburys Fallowfield for hosting us.

We hope to continue efforts for the rest of the year, you can keep up with student safety news here.
