Emergency Support

If it's an emergency and the crime is still taking place, call 999 and ask for the relevant emergency service. Blank space

The emergency services will contact King’s security to make arrangements to come on to campus and alert them of the incident.    

If there is more than one person available to offer support at the scene, both the emergency services and security can be contacted. If this is not possible, the emergency services should always be called in the first instance.  

Greivance Procedures

Formal Resolution

Grievances may be raised by employees who have been bullied or harassed or who consider that another member of the King’s Community has been bullied or harassed. In addition, managers may engage the disciplinary procedures to deal with occurrences of bullying and harassment they become aware of. It is not necessary for a grievance to have been issued for a manager to take this step. The relevant policies are: 

Early Intervention

Early intervention is not obligatory and will not always be appropriate, but it can lead to a resolution where an honest and constructive conversation is possible. Such conversations may enable the person who experienced the bullying or harassment to explain how and why something was hurtful and enable the alleged bully or harasser to understand the consequences of their actions. If a member of the King’s Community believes they or another member of the King’s Community has been bullied or harassed, they may choose to: 

  • have an initial discussion with the alleged bully or harasser to raise their concerns;  
  • have an initial discussion with their own, or the alleged bully or harasser’s, line manager or supervisor to facilitate a constructive conversation or help address the situation; 
  • members of staff who do not feel comfortable approaching the relevant line manager or supervisor may ask for support from their HR People Partner; and  
  • students who do not feel comfortable approaching the relevant line manager or supervisor, may ask for support from a personal tutor or student adviser or, if this is not appropriate, from KCLSU’s Advice team.
