If you would like hear from a member of our friendly Student Wellbeing Service about what happens when you choose to make an anonymous report, please listen to the below:

When we have a comprehensive idea of what is happening in our community, we can take more action to ensure that safety and support is available to those who need it. Some use anonymous reporting if they do not feel they need support at this time but would like to make the university aware of an incident.

When you make an anonymous report, we won’t be able to see your details or reach out to you with further information and support. If you later you decide you would like to access specialist support, you can make a Report + Support submission to “Speak to an advisor”.

When making an anonymous report you will not be able to provide specific details in your submission. You will be asked to choose from a drop-down list to tell us what, when and where the incident you are reporting happened.

When might I use anonymous reporting?

We encourage all students to access support at university but we understand that it can be difficult to report something that has happened or may still be happening. We urge you to reach out for support, but know that if now is not the right time, we are here to help you whenever you decide to access our service. We work with a range of external agencies to provide support, if you do not feel comfortable talking to the university but would like to access external support, please see the support pages throughout our site, these are listed below by category: 

Be an Active Bystander and flag it

Flag incidents of bullying, harassment, violence and discrimination and make a difference! 

You can be an active bystander for your peers and provide an anonymous report on behalf of someone else or to make us aware of an incident you have witnessed. You can feel assured that we will use this information to make Canterbury Christ Church University a safer place for all students, staff and visitors.
