Report and Support tool

Our online tool has been developed for UWE Bristol students to get help if you've experienced something on campus or on university business that makes you feel upset or uncomfortable.

With Report and Support, you can choose to speak with one of our trained advisers so they can discretely investigate incidents, or you can report issues anonymously.

Prevent Duty and extremism

Government legislation has placed a statutory duty on Higher Education institutions to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”.

The legislation, known as the Prevent Duty, applies to all kinds of extremism related to any ideology. The objective is to safeguard individuals from being radicalised and drawn into terrorism.

If you have any concerns that a member of the University community may be vulnerable to radicalisation or that extremist organisations are operating on UWE Bristol campuses, please call the UWE Bristol Serious Concerns Line.
