How to use the tool to get support and be part of the positive culture shift at Kent

There is a new online reporting tool for reporting student incidents of sexual misconduct and assault, harassment (non-sexual), assault, bullying, discrimination and hate incidents so you can easily access support when you need it. 

This tool replaces the previous inform Kent (inK) system ​and helps Kent students to get the support they need promptly. 

The Report and Support tool allows both anonymous and named reports.  If you choose to provide identifiable information, we will contact you to offer support or discuss ways that you can (if you wish to) report the incident formally. If you decide to report anonymously, you will be providing information that will help us to make our university the safest it can be. Anonymous information will be reviewed at regular intervals throughout the year to ensure that we are ​monitoring incidents reported and putting ​new strategies in place where needed. 

Take a look at Report and Support online for information on how to report, as well as several support articles relating to these incidents. We recommend you familiarise yourself with the tool in case you or a friend needs it in the future, and you can also find information on positive safety campaigns and ways in which you can get involved in promoting a culture of respect at Kent.
