Direct Gov – Bullying and Harassment in the Workplace gov.uk
Bullying and harassment is behaviour that makes someone feel intimidated or offended - harassment is unlawful under the Equality Act 2010. Employers are responsible for preventing bullying and harassment - they’re liable for any harassment suffered by their employees. Having anti-bullying and harassment policies can help prevent problems. Acas has produced a booklet for employers, including advice on setting up a policy as well as how to recognise, deal with and prevent bullying and harassment.

Everyone should be treated with dignity and respect at work. Bullying and harassment of any kind are in no-one's interest and should not be tolerated in the workplace, but if you are being bullied or harassed it can be difficult to know what to do about it. This leaflet gives employees basic information about bullying and harassment, summarises the responsibilities of employers and outlines some of the options open to you and points you to sources of further information and advice.

Youth2Youth (Y2Y) is a unique helpline service. The reason it is unique is that the helpline is run by young people for young people. Many young people find it difficult to talk to adults; some do not trust them and often young people feel older people just do not understand. Considering the difficulties some young people face when talking to adults, there are very few opportunities to contact alternative services. Here at Y2Y we provide that alternative. Our helpline staff are all young people themselves who have been specially trained to help. They are supervised and supported by qualified adult counsellors.

It doesn't matter how big or small you think the problem is, or whether you're being targeted online or offline, our mentors are here to listen and support you.
