I WANT TO REPORT AN INCIDENT

If something has happened to you, or to someone you know, we would like to support you through the reporting process. 

We are close to launching an online anonymous reporting system, but for now, please get in touch with the Bullying and Harassment supporters (LamisIanYJ) or the Medical School (Lois BrandCatherine SwalesDavid McCartney). 

There are more resources and contact details for people who would like to support you on the page, Where can I find support?. 

Please see below for some more information about different types of bullying and harassment and commonly asked questions.

WHAT IS HARASSMENT?

Harassment includes unwanted behaviour or actions by an individual or a group, which violate another person's dignity, or create an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for that individual.

WHAT IS BULLYING?

Bullying is an unwanted behaviour, abuse or misuse of power used by an individual or group to intimidate, offend or dominate another individual or group. Anybody can be bullied, but often bullying might involve somebody with more power bullying somebody with less.

WHAT IS A HATE CRIME?

Harassment due to a protected characteristic is known as a hate crime. This means that the behaviour or actions are motivated by hostility towards age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership or pregnancy and maternity. This means that it is against the law under the Equality Act 2010.
