Anti-bullying and Harassment Campaign


A powerful health and care campaign has been launched in Norfolk and Waveney in a bid to tackle bullying and harassment and urges people to be kind to staff.

The aim of the campaign, which is being run by NHS Norfolk and Waveney on behalf of the health and care system, is to help raise awareness amongst patients and service users of the diverse workforce who care for our community and reiterate that abuse of any kind towards our staff is not tolerated.

Reporting inappropriate behaviours

In Norfolk there are approximately 1,200 hate incidents each year, however, around 80% of hate incidents are not reported, this needs to change if we are to stop this happening to people!

Hate incidents is something that no one should have to tolerate, it can hurt people and leave them feeling confused and frightened.  

Hate incidents/crime can take many forms, some more obvious than others. Although physical violence, verbal abuse, damage to property and graffiti are common, other forms of hate incidents are on the increase.

Stop Hate in Norfolk aims to encourage more people to have the confidence to report incidents of hate either direct to the police or through external organisations that can support people to report that may not wish to go direct to the police.
