Respect Yourself • Respect Others • Respect Difference

Here at ICMP, we have zero tolerance for violence, harassment or discrimination of any sort.

We won’t tolerate any form of abuse in our community, no matter where – on our campuses, events, or online. We are committed to ensuring all people are treated with dignity and respect regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation.

If you experience or witness any incident of this kind, you can report it – and choose to do so anonymously, if you prefer - and can also get the mental health support you need.

“At ICMP, there is no place for any behaviour that can hurt the dignity of any student or staff member. We commit to never adopt, accept or condone these behaviours.

The responsibility for challenging inequalities and driving change falls on all of us. We call on every member of the ICMP community to deepen their understanding of discrimination, harassment, and violence in all their forms. We call on everyone to ask what more we can all do to ensure that we keep creating an actively inclusive, safe, and respectful environment.” 


Paul Kirkham
Chief Executive

How can I report an incident?

Anyone can report an incident via our reporting form. When using the reporting tool, you’ll need to provide a brief overview of the incident and include only key information about what happened. We ask that you only provide key information because what you submit may be relevant if at any point this becomes a legal matter. All data will be kept in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

There are two ways you can tell us what happened:

Report Anonymously
You can submit this form without providing your contact details. Choosing to report anonymously means you will submit your report without completing any personal details. We won’t be able to contact you once we’ve received the report to offer advice or support. However, the information you report will help us to provide better support to others and inform prevention work across ICMP. Please note that reporting anonymously will not lead to formal action being taken.

Report and Speak to an Advisor
Things might feel difficult or tough at the moment, but by choosing to provide your contact details, we'll be able to help provide you with better support and to stop something similar from happening to anyone else.

You have the opportunity in this report to select a preference for who you would like to be contacted by from ICMP.

Once you’ve submitted the report, your preferred advisor will contact you within five working days to offer advice and support.

This does not initiate a formal complaints process but your Advisor will support you if you wish to make a formal complaint or report an incident to the Police. 

Your data is important to us. We won't collect or store any information that goes against our Privacy Policy. We will keep your information confidential and we will not disclose any personal or identifiable information to others unless we believe there is a genuine threat to a person’s health and safety.
