Statement regarding Manchester Arena Incident

Wednesday 24-05-2017 - 16:40

Here at your Students’ Union, we are all shocked and saddened by the events of Monday night in Manchester, and now by the news that the named suspect involved was a student here at Salford.

Our thoughts are with the friends and families of those affected by this week’s events.

This is a truly difficult time for all of us, and now more than ever we need to stick together as a community, and remember that there is more that joins us than divides us. We are proud to be part of the Salford student community, a community that acknowledges and celebrates its diversity, and supports each other through tough times.

Our focus is now on ensuring that each of you feels supported and safe during this time; Students’ Union staff and Officers will be on campus, offering advice and help to any students in need of assistance, or a friendly chat.

There are a variety of on-campus support services and networks you can access:

We will not tolerate hatred on our campus and we refuse to fear for the future.

In solidarity,
