It's happened to me, what can I do?

  • Think 
    • Find a safe space.  If an incident has just happened, try and find somewhere you feel safe. 
    • What is discrimination? It might be useful to think about what is meant by discrimination and how these behaviours are described. 
  • Report
    • Both staff and students can report an incident using KCL's Report and Support system. 
    • You can choose to do this anonymously or you can request support from an advisor. If you choose to talk to an advisor they will be able to talk through the options and support available to you, in confidence.
    • If you choose to make a formal complaint about a student or fellow member of staff, there are procedures which set out the steps you'll need to follow.
  • Get support

It's happened to someone I know, what should I do?

If you know someone who has been affected by discrimination, they are not alone and support is available.
  • Talk
    • Listen. Just taking the time to listen to someone and talk about what has happened can help. Try these 6 active listening tips to help you support them.
    • Give options. When they have finished talking, ask them if they are okay to talk through some possible options and next steps.  
    • You can encourage them to seek support. 
    • Alternatively, you can make an anonymous disclosure which will allow us to investigate if there are multiple instances in one area.
  • Get support
