We’re taking a stand against bullying because we believe that it has no place at UoG.

If you are experiencing bullying while studying or working at University of Greenwich, it is important to know that you are not alone. Report + Support offers information to help you recognise and address bullying, as well as options for seeking support and resolution. 

What is bullying? 

Bullying can be very difficult to define, and this is the reason why many people often struggle to understand whether what they have experienced does come under this definition, meaning that they are likely to "just let it go" or dismiss it as something that cannot be addressed.

Specifically, bullying is offensive, intimidating, malicious or insulting behavior's that involves the misuse of power that can make the person feel vulnerable, upset, humiliated, undermined or threatened. 

Power does not always mean being in a position of authority, but can include both personal strength, age, social status, or the power to coerce through fear or intimidation. 

Bullying can take the form of physical, verbal, and non-verbal conduct. Including postings on social media.

What is Anti-Bullying Week?

Those affected by bullying can often feel like they have nobody to turn to and feel unsupported. This can have long-lasting effects on multiple areas of their lives. We want to change that. It’s important to know that support is always available and that bullying must be stopped whenever and wherever it occurs.

Anti-Bullying week is an opportunity to help to raise awareness about the issue and promote positive relationships. We encourage you to take action to prevent bullying and support those who have been affected by it. 

You can help by sharing our Anti-Bullying Week resources; letting people know that you are prepared to speak out against bullying behaviours; and sharing support information with people you think might be affected by bullying.
