About the Dignity & Respect Support Service
The UCD Dignity & Respect Support Service was launched in November 2021 and officially opened by Minster Simon Harris.
The UCD Dignity & Respect Support Advisers work proactively with employees and students who disclose issues of bullying, harassment or sexual misconduct, and those who are reported for such issues. The Advisers, who are experienced and trained to support, respond and advise on all reports of a dignity and respect nature, will provide you with a supportive, confidential environment in which to discuss the issues and will support you to make a decision that is right for you and your situation.
As a person making a report, the Dignity & Respect Support Advisers will provide you with support and will work with you in relation to the steps to seeking a solution to the issues you are experiencing, but the decision will rest with you as to how you would like the issue to be resolved. They can also assist you in making a formal complaint, if you wish to do so, and can continue providing that support throughout the formal complaint process which may include accompanying you to investigation meetings and the provision of aftercare support following any informal or formal interventions.
As a person being reported, the Dignity & Respect Support Advisers are also available to support you if you have been accused of carrying out such behaviour. Different Advisers will support the various people involved to avoid a conflict of interest. If a formal complaint has been made, they will provide information as to what this will normally entail. They may accompany you to investigations and also provide aftercare support.
UCD Dignity & Respect Service runs a drop-in service during which time students, staff and UCD community members can drop in for support, information, or a listening ear. Alternatively, face-to-face or Zoom appointments can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by phoning 01 7167716.
