It can be very distressing if you have been accused of bullying, harassment, racism, sexual harassment, discrimination, a hate crime or sexual assault.

The College will not make assumptions on the relative merits of a complaint.
No party will be considered ‘at fault’ until a report/complaint has been investigated.  All
those involved will be treated fairly and offered advice and support.

When a report is made about a student, there are procedures which set out the steps that the College may take. Should it need to be, a fair internal investigation will take place. 

We will utilise our existing College disciplinary procedures if appropriate. 

Report and Support 
Students and staff can report an incident using the College's Report and Support
system. You can choose to do this anonymously or you can request support from an adviser. If you choose to talk to an adviser they will be able to talk through the options and support available to you, in confidence.

Student Advice and Support Team 
The College's Student Advice and Support Team provides support on various types of issues including Mental Health and Wellbeing Support.  In addition, we have friendly and knowledgeable external contacts who we can put you in touch with for further support.

They are available to talk about anything that’s troubling you, no matter how large or small the issue.
Helpline: 116 123. Lines are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
