Do you work in the charity sector? Have you experienced bullying at work?

Rebecca Cooney writing for the publication Third Sector asks “Does the charity sector need a bullying and discrimination ombudsman?

Recent stories of discriminatory bullying and abuse, and the outpouring of allegations on social media under the twitter tag #NotJustNCVO reveal the extent of bullying and abuse in the charity and voluntary sector.

If you are subject to, or witness abuse of a fellow worker, then your first port of call is your local Unison Steward who will be able to provide advice and support. If your workplace does not have a Steward or a Unison Contact person then please feel free to contact the Unison CVO branch office for advice and support.
