Speak Out




Speak Out !


Speak Out is an online anonymous reporting tool available to staff and students to disclose incidents of bullying, cyberbullying, harassment, discrimination, hate crime, coercive behaviour/control, stalking, assault, sexual harassment, sexual assault, and rape.

The tool will help you to find information and contact details on relevant Maynooth supports and specialist external supports. Should you wish to make a formal report, guidance on formal reporting procedures is signposted.


It is important to remember that as the Speak Out reporting tool is completely anonymous, we have no way to identify or contact any member of the college community who uses the tool.


Please report one incident, or series of related incidents at a time. This is to ensure that we can understand the nature of your experience.
