If you have a safeguarding concern during this time, or need help now, please see the 'I need help now' page.

What is Report + Support?

Report + Support is an online tool developed by Culture Shift where staff and students can report an incident anonymously or with contact information. Report + Support is also home to information about internal and external support, policies and procedures. 

Who can make a report?

Kingston students and staff can make a report through Report + Support. Visitors are encouraged to report complaints through the public complaints process.

How will Kingston manage malicious complaints?

If a report is found to be malicious or vexatious, such reports will be addressed under existing student and staff procedures.

What do you do with the data gathered from reports with contact information?

The data collected from Report + Support is used to produce anonymised annual reports. These reports would include the number of cases, most reported types of harassment and location. This information is shared with the relevant staff and committees at the University. 

How secure is the data and information sent through the system?

Data held on Report + Support is GDPR compliant and further information about how data is collected and stored is outlined in the Privacy Notice.

Can I report an incident as an Alumni / former staff member? 

While we always recommend that you report an incident to the university at the earliest opportunity, Kingston University welcomes reports from alumni and former staff members. Please note what action the university is able to take will be assessed on a case-by-case basis and may be limited due to a number of factors.
Please remember if you submit an anonymous report we will not be able to contact you to discuss the incident, and there will be limitations on action the university is able to take. 

Who do I contact for more information
