If you have been affected by bullying and would like to access support you can contact Connexions and we will get back to you as soon as possible.  We can respond by email, telephone or arrange for you to see a Connexions Personal Adviser.  (It would help if you include your name and phone number, but do not be put off if you feel like you do not want to include this)
