Acceptable Behaviour Service

The University has a network of Acceptable Behaviour Supporters who are staff volunteers trained to provide an informal advisory service to staff experiencing unacceptable behaviour, bullying or harassment at work. They can also support staff who are facing allegations about their own behaviour.     

The Acceptable Behaviour Service is in place to help drive the cultural and structural change that is required to build a diverse and inclusive University community where people from the broadest possible range of backgrounds can reach their full potential and thrive at work.

Alternatively staff can contact their HR Business Partnering team, their trade union representative or report something anonymously using Report + Support. 

The Acceptable Behaviour Service is for staff only. Students, including postgraduate research students, should follow the advice on the student support webpages about reporting unacceptable behaviour.

The Acceptable Behaviour Supporters provide an essential and invaluable service at the University. These volunteers provide a safe space for staff to talk through their experiences of unacceptable behaviour, and as such are fundamental in helping to build an inclusive and supportive workplace.
