Sussex is committed to providing an inclusive education, research and working environment free from bullying and harassment, ensuring all staff and students are treated and treat others with respect, consideration, courtesy and dignity at all times.
This Report + Support online tool has been developed by Culture Shift. By using the tool, staff and students can report issues relating to sexual violence, domestic abuse, hate incidents, bullying and harassment, stalking and discrimination. Reports can be made anonymously or with contact details. The tool also provides information about internal and external support, policies and procedures.
On launching the tool, we are committed to:
- Share six monthly insight reports here – insight reports will provide data on the number of reports made (anonymous and with contact details), the themes identified in reports and the reasons for not wishing to report.
- Publish an annual report which collates data from the 6 monthly insights, describes action taken in response to key themes arising and sets out plans for the next reporting period.
- Share data on staff reports termly with the Inclusive Sussex Programme Board (ISPB), the People Culture and Inclusion Committee (PCIC) and the University’s Executive Group. ISPB and PCIC will approve action plans and review progress against plans.
