Hey everyone, it’s Arun Aggarwal (VP Student Communities) and Sam Higman (VP Welfare) here.

This year we’ve seen a rise in the number of reported issues around harassment come to the Sabbatical team, and be publicly risen. Because of this, we have worked alongside the Stand Up To Racism Society to better the Union’s method of reporting harassment and allow us to gather data.

We have come up with a new service to facilitate how to report those issues and how we can provide support to affected people. This new service will be in the shape of an online form which you can find on our website here: Harassment Report Form.

Student and staff are able to complete the form with the details of any incident they have experienced or witnessed. The options we have for the incidents are:

  • Disability
  • Gender
  • LGBT+
  • Race
  • Religious belief
  • Sexual assault
  • Sexual orientation
  • Other harassment

It’s important to remember that any kind of harassment can be reported to us.

You can report anonymously if you wish, but we will not be able to contact anyone personally to offer support from an anonymous report.

Equally, you can choose to leave your details and, whilst we will keep them confidential, we will get in touch to offer support and advice. We will then use this information to help support and look at how we can make things better.
