We take all reports of racism, bullying, harassment and sexual violence seriously to promote a safe and inclusive environment. If you see or experience it, please report it through our Tell Someone form. You can make an anonymous report.
We’ll let you know about the support available, discuss formal and informal ways of resolving an issue, and signpost you to further information. We will listen to you and be guided by you in terms of the next steps.
What happens when you make a report
When you contact us through Tell Someone you are not committing to any specific course of action. The form is monitored by a small group of staff who have been trained in responding to and supporting people who have experienced racism, bullying, harassment or sexual violence.
If you select ‘To receive support and assistance’ one of the following will get in touch to discuss next steps:
- Head of Counselling and Student Health
- Head of Student Advice and Safeguarding Support
You can report an incident in 3 different ways:
- We won't ask you for any personal identifiable details or attempt to identify or contact you.
- We will keep anonymised data for reporting purposes and to see if there are similar reports and patterns of behaviour that should be addressed.
2. To receive support and assistance
- A member of staff will contact you in response to your report.
- We may request more information, arrange an appointment or refer you to another service relevant to your needs.
- This is not the same as making a formal complaint, but we can advise you about how a formal complaint would work and help you decide if this is something you want to do.
3. A formal complaint
- If you feel ready, you can make a formal complaint against an individual.
The information you provide is treated as confidential and will not be shared without your agreement. Read more about confidentiality - as well as privacy - when you complete our Tell Someone form.
