Harassment and bullying support
The College is committed to making our community an environment which is respectful and inclusive. This includes eliminating all forms of discrimination, especially direct and indirect forms of harassment, bullying and victimisation.
Through the Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Centre, Imperial provides:
Report & Support
With the new Report & Support tool, whether you are a member of staff, a student, a contractor or a visitor, you can disclose unwelcoming behaviours such as bullying, harassment, sexual violence, sexual harassment and sexual misconduct. You can disclose either anonymously or you can provide your details to be contacted by an advisor, regardless if you have experienced these directly or if you want to disclose on behalf of someone else.
We appreciate that for many reasons you may not feel comfortable providing your name, that’s why this online form allows you to disclose anonymously. The information you provide will remain confidential and will be used to monitor issues across Imperial.
We encourage people to disclose an incident first, so that they can receive support, including about the consequences of making a formal report to College as the second step.
If you choose to disclose with your contact details, the report will remain confidential and the information will only be passed on to relevant, and specifically trained, members of staff on a strictly need-to-know basis. We will not disclose any personal or identifiable information to others unless we believe there is a genuine threat to a person’s health and safety. You can read about the difference between disclosing and putting in a formal report below.
1. Disclose an incident – this is when someone wants us to know that something has happened, but they do not want, or are not ready, for there to be a formal investigation. Disclosures can be made to the Harassment Support Contacts, or by the online tool.
2. Report an incident – this is when people provide a formal report, by following the HR Procedures to initiate a formal investigation into an incident. Staff who formally report incidents will be supported throughout.
As a member of staff, who can I talk to about harassment or bullying?
Confidential Care phone hotline
Confidential Care is Imperial's employee assistance provider. They run an external report hotline which you can use while remaining anonymous. Call the hotline on 0800 197 2814.
Confidential Care shares only anonymous summary information with HR, to help the College understand issues and take action.
Harassment Support Contacts (HSCs)
HSCs are trained staff volunteers. They will listen to you and help you explore the informal and formal options available. HSCs keep all discussions confidential.
Phone and email contact information for each HSC is provided further down this page.
