Making a Report
If you’ve been subjected to or have witnessed any form of inappropriate or offensive behaviour, there are two types of reports you can make through Report and Support. You can choose to tell us either anonymously, or by including your name and contact details.
Please note should you decide to submit a report, the Report and Support platform is not designed to receive urgent reports. If you need immediate support or feel in crisis, we have listed several support and emergency services contact details on the GCU Wellbeing webpages you may find helpful.
Find out more about reporting at the report section of this platform.
