The Defence Bullying, Harassment and Discrimination (BHD) Helpline
A confidential helpline has launched to provide support for personnel experiencing or witnessing bullying, harassment or discrimination in the armed forces
Set up by the Ministry of Defence and employee support organisation Health Assured, the helpline is staffed 24/7 by trained bullying, harassment and discrimination advisers and qualified counsellors. The advisors, who are independent from the chain of command, can provide emotional support, information and guidance to callers.
Individuals will be able to anonymously report incidents to independent advisers and seek help on how to take issues forward, including through local support networks or the service complaints system, where necessary.
The service will provide personnel with a safe space to discuss their experiences and work towards a resolution, with anonymity if required. Where there are reported incidents of unacceptable behaviours, serious action will be taken. The number is 0800 783 0334 and is free to call.
