It’s Anti-Bullying Week and we’re here if you need us

This week is Anti-Bullying week (13 -20 November), an annual event co-ordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance, which aims to raise awareness of bullying and highlight ways of preventing and responding to it.

The theme this year is ‘Make a Noise About Bullying’.

Bullying affects millions of lives and can leave us feeling hopeless. But it doesn’t have to be this way. If we challenge it, we can change it, and it starts by reaching out…

Who can I speak to for guidance and support?

Students can use the University’s Report + Support tool to seek advice and support for any incident of unacceptable behaviour which includes; bullying, harassment, sexual harassment, sexual violence, domestic violence, hate crimes or discrimination.

You may have seen stickers, posters and banners around campus highlighting Report + Support, featuring a quick-access QR code which enables you to report an instance of unacceptable behaviour from your smartphone.

You also have the option to discuss any issues which are concerning you with a Wellbeing Practitioner from the Wellbeing Team. You can make a report to them anonymously if you wish. Our team of Wellbeing Practitioners are here to provide support or someone to talk to if you need it. Get in touch by emailing

We would encourage any student experiencing bullying to come forward and talk to the University, we are here to listen and we are here to help.
