  • Developing training and advice/guidance resources.
  • Developing effective person focused systems and processes with clear support mechanisms.
  • Continuing to further develop positive links with external services.

Report and Support - reporting form

Bullying, harassment, sexual harassment and violence, and discrimination are NeverOK. All staff, students, and visitors to our campus can report something anonymously or get support from an adviser.

  • All reports will be treated confidentially.
  • We will only act with the Reporter's permission
  • Support and advice will be offered to the Reporter.

The Report It form is to give the opportunity for students, staff and visitors at UEA to report any incidents of assault, harassment and discrimination that they have experienced or witnessed. Report It allows the University to offer support and guidance, take any action as agreed by the reporter, and to collect more accurate data of incidents to understand issues on our campus.

You can choose to report anonymously, however if you do, we will not be able to offer any support or guidance to you.
