Bullying, harassment, racism, hate crimes, sexual violence and domestic abuse

Prevention and support

What we all love about Keele is our sense of community. We care about what happens on our campuses, and we want to ensure that everyone, whoever they are, whatever they study or wherever they live, feels safe, supported and accepted.

We know though that not everyone says or does things that are right. People can offend, they can take advantage, and they can cause harm. We might see somebody being disrespectful to a fellow student or hear homophobic, racist, sexist or transphobic jokes. We might witness somebody being bullied or sexually assaulted.

#NeverOK is our campaign that aims to end all forms of violence and discriminatory behaviour, including rape and sexual assault, racism, ableism, ageism, homophobia and transphobia, and discrimination based on a person's religion. Everyone has the right to live and study in a safe and supportive environment. We're making a commitment to take a stand against violence and discriminatory behaviour. Because it's #NeverOK.
