Who can you contact?

If you have been subjected to abuse

  • It is you who has been subjected to abuse who determines if the event or behaviour is unwelcome. 
  • Act immediately if you feel that you have been subjected to abuse.  
  • If the situation is not threatening, try informing the person responsible for the behaviour that their behaviour is unwelcome, or alternatively ask someone else to do this.    
  • If necessary, contact any of the contact persons mentioned below to get support.
