At RLSS UK we are committed to making our organisation an environment which is respectful and inclusive.

Acts of bullying, harassment, and discrimination are not acceptable.

Report and Support, our online tool, aims to provide a fair, unbiased, confidential process that treats people with respect and empowers them to be heard. It is a standalone platform which allows staff, members, and candidates to report and find support related to any form of bullying, harassment, or discrimination they may have experienced or witnessed.

If you or someone you know has experienced or witnessed any form of bullying, harassment or discrimination you can report it anonymously or you can provide your details by clicking on the below link or scanning the QR Code:

Definitions of Bullying, Harassment or Discrimination are:

Bullying is offensive, intimidating, or malicious behaviour that makes you feel vulnerable, upset, humiliated, undermined or threatened. 

It can include a wide of range of behaviours, for example;

  • shouting at, being sarcastic towards, ridiculing or demeaning others
  • physical or psychological threats
  • overbearing and intimidating levels of supervision
  • inappropriate and/or derogatory remarks about someone's performance
  • abuse of authority or power by those in positions of seniority
  • deliberately excluding someone

Harassment is when someone repeatedly behaves in a way that makes you feel scared, distressed, or threatened. It can include things like verbal abuse, bullying, jokes, or posting comments about you on social media.


Discrimination means treating someone 'less favourably' than someone else, because of:

  • age
  • disability
  • gender reassignment
  • marriage and civil partnership
  • pregnancy and maternity
  • race
  • religion or belief
  • sex
  • sexual orientation

These are called 'protected characteristics'.

Less favourable treatment can be anything that puts someone with a protected characteristic at a disadvantage, compared to someone who does not have that characteristic.
