College of West Anglia (CWA) is committed to providing a safe environment where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. We have a zero-tolerance approach to sexual violence, sexual harassment, bullying, discrimination, hate crimes and other incidents of abuse – it is never acceptable. We will take action to tackle this whenever it happens. All reports will be taken seriously, we will listen to you and will talk to you about how we can help and support you.
Report an incident
Report and Support is our online tool for students to report incidents or concerns that have taken place both inside or outside of college about yourself or someone you are worried about. All information reported to us is confidential and will only be shared with others on a need-to-know basis if you or others are at risk.
We understand that some students do not want to formally report an incident. You can tell us what happened anonymously, where you do not disclose any personal details. This can really help us to improve our support. Please note that we will not be able to identify you or offer support if you do not include your name. However, the student welfare team are always available to support you if you change your mind.
