Experienced or witnessed bullying?

Let’s deal with it together

Create a record of your experiences

Bullying in all its forms can be incredibly damaging. If it’s happened to you or you’ve seen it happen to others, it’s probably affected your mental health. Replaying things in your mind over and over again can make you feel worse, so our specialist support services are there to empower you to take positive action, for yourself or others. 

Anyone can be the target of bullying. It may be deeply personal criticism, abusive behaviour or gaslighting. You might face specific types of harassment, such as racism, homophobia, sexism or ableism. Whether it looks like this or something else, we’re here to help figure it out.

Spot

Lots of people find it helps to keep a record of bullying, harassment, micro-aggression or discrimination. We’ve created an industry-specific version of Spot – a digital recording tool – to help you do just that. Use Spot to help you make a record of the crucial details and organise your thoughts. Each record remains confidential within the system; it’s not accessible by us or anyone else. You can decide whether to act on it later.

It’s important to remember that you’re not alone. Nearly 9 in 10 workers told us they’ve experienced or watched bullying or harassment happen. 

When you visit Spot, a helpful chatbot will guide you through the process of writing down what’s happened or what you’ve seen or heard, including all the details you might need later. 

 As well as defining bullying and different types of harassment, Spot will also help you to save other things that could be useful, like screenshots or emails, creating a completely confidential digital record that you can download as a PDF and share later — if you decide to take things further (which is up to you). 

 Spot can still help you: 

  • Notice patterns of behaviour 
  • Process what has happened 
  • ‘File’ the experience to give your mind a break
