Bullying and Harassment

In an emergency:


  • Call 999 for fire and rescue services, police and the ambulance service.


If you have a hearing or speech impairment, use the textphone service 18000 or text us on 999 if you’ve pre-registered with the emergency SMS service


If you cannot speak, press 55 when prompted and your call will be transferred to the Police. Pressing 55 only works on mobile phones and doesn't allow the police to track your location.



  • Victim Support can help anyone affected by crime. Not only those who experience it directly, but also their friends, family and any other people involved. It doesn’t matter when the crime took place, or whether you’ve reported it to the police. You can get help at any time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week via their supportline on 0808 168 9111. They are independent from the police, and support is free and confidential.


Bullying and harassment are never okay and there is plenty of support available for you. The University's Disclosure Response Team are a team of specialist staff, trained to support those experiencing harassment, hate crime, sexual violence, relationship abuse and other forms of unacceptable behaviour. They will always believe what you tell them. 


The Disclosure Response Team

If you believe you are in immediate danger or you are concerned about your safety, learn how to access further help and keep yourself safe.


Please complete the online disclosure form to make an identified or anonymous disclosure.


The Disclosure Response Team aim to respond to all disclosures within two working days, within the hours of 09:00-16:00, Monday to Friday, excluding bank holidays.


They understand that it can be difficult to trust other people to tell them what has happened. Some common worries about sharing these experiences include:

  • what if no one believes me?
  • what if I’m judged?
  • what has happened to me is not that bad
  • the person who is responsible is someone I know.


It is your choice whether you tell someone about your experiences. However, it is important to know that the University can support you.


The Disclosure Response Team take all disclosures seriously and will believe what you tell them.


There is no legal definition of bullying, but it is usually considered a repeated behaviour which is intended to hurt another individual. If you are being bullied because of your race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or other physical aspect, this may be considered as discriminatory behaviour. In extreme cases, prejudice-motivated bullying may be considered a hate crime and an individual responsible for perpetrating hate crime may be prosecuted. The Online Safety Act is a new set of laws to protect children and adults online. It will make social media companies more responsible for their users’ safety on their platforms.


Types of Bullying

There are varying forms of bulling that you may be subject to. These can include:

  • Physical assault – where someone, or a group of individuals, cause physical damage to you or your possessions.
  • Social bullying – social exclusion or damaging someone’s social reputation or acceptance
  • Threatening behaviour – threatening or manipulative acts intended to make you feel inferior or endangered.
  • Name calling – Inappropriate use of language to refer to you or someone you are close to.
  • Cyberbullying – Online abuse facilitated through social networks, games, chat rooms or an online forum.
  • Sexual bullying – Where sexuality or gender is used as a weapon against another individual.


Sometimes it can be difficult to determine whether you are being bullied or not as some forms of bullying are hard to differentiate from a prank or banter between friends. However, if you are feeling emotionally and physically drained as a result of repetitive and harmful actions from a peer or individual, you may find that their behaviours constitute a form of bullying. If this is the case, you are within your rights to speak out and seek support.


Cyber bullying

Cyber bullying is increasingly common as more people create and maintain online identities either through social media, gaming, or online forums. Cyber bullying is where someone initiates or suffers abuse through an online platform. This can be very scary and malicious as it is often easier for a perpetrator to bully others anonymously with little or no repercussion for their actions.


There are a growing number of online platforms where cyber bullying can occur so it is very important to be careful and considerate when you are posting online, or speaking on a shared form. Some of the apps commonly used by students that could facilitate cyber bullying include:

  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • Messenger
  • Snapchat
  • Tiktok
  • Twitter
  • Whatsapp
  • Zoom


If you are familiar with these applications, we would strongly advise you to use them with caution; given the increasing emphasis being placed on life online, it is important that you are mindful of those you are in digital contact with.


There are a number of behaviours that are considered as cyber bullying and we have listed some below for you to be aware of:

  • Harassment – the sending of deliberately offensive or abusive messages.
  • Denigration – circulating false and damaging information about another individual and/or spreading edited and improper images of an individual without their knowledge and consent.
  • Flaming – Purposefully using extreme language online and contributing to online arguments with a view to sparking emotional reactions from others.
  • Impersonation – Hacking into someone else’s account or profile to post as them without their permission or consent.
  • Outing and trickery – Sharing other people’s personal information online.
  • Cyber stalking – Repeatedly sending threatening or intimidating messages through an online platform to a single individual or group of individuals.
  • Exclusion – Leaving out (a) certain individual(s) from a chat, conversation or page with a view to excluding them from a social group.


If you are concerned that you may have been a victim of cyber bullying, please consider our guidance on how to recover from bullying below.


Notably, in addition to the list of cyber bullying behaviours listed above, the screen capturing, or possession of sexual or inappropriate images may also be considered as cyber bullying. The Online Safety Act passed on October 2023 is a new set of laws to protect children and adults online. It will make social media companies more responsible for their users’ safety on their platforms.  It is inappropriate, and often illegal, to possess or share a sexual or compromised image of an individual without their consent. Sexting, the sending and/or receiving of sexually explicit messages, is an increasingly common behaviour on digital messaging platforms. Although the sharing an intimate photo with a trusted individual may not be considered a crime, the sharing of pornographic images without the consent of the subject (or if that person is under 18) can be a criminal offence and lead to prosecution.


Abusive Relationships


Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for bullying to occur within a romantic or sexual relationship. In this circumstance, it is often difficult to recognise abusive or bullying behaviour, or to escape from the relationship.

Bullying in a relationship can take many different forms. Some of the most common forms of abuse in a relationship include:

  • Emotional bullying;
  • Verbal abuse;
  • Physical abuse;
  • Controlling behaviours; and
  • Sexual bullying.


Sexual bullying can range from the use of degrading and sexual language to sexually manipulate an individual, to the application of pressure on an individual to make them act promiscuously.

It is common for an individual who is experiencing, or who has experienced, an abusive relationship to feel ashamed, but it is important to accept that these behaviours are not normal nor acceptable. For more advice on Violence, Abuse and Unhealthy Relationships and the support available, please see our webpage here.

As above, the Disclosure Response Team are here to provide the help and support you need.


Get Help

If you have noticed that you are being treated inappropriately by a colleague, peer or family member, it is possible that you may be a victim of bullying. It is not unusual for this to make you feel physically and emotionally exhausted and in some cases will lead to low mood. If this is the case, there are some things that you can try to make yourself feel better and to seek professional support.

  1. Trust your instincts – it can be difficult to recognise bullying behaviours, especially if you are on the receiving end. If you start to notice that someone is repeatedly making you feel sad, nervous or endangered you should always seek help.
  2. Look at the big picture – often, people who exhibit bullying behaviours do so because of insecurities or events that have occurred in their personal life. This does not excuse their behaviour, but may help you to accept what they are doing, with a view to safeguarding your own wellbeing.
  3. Manage feelings of stress – If you are being bullied, it is common to feel like you are managing an extreme level of stress – because you are! Feelings of anxiety and sadness can increase your stress levels and make everyday tasks seem very difficult and sometimes impossible. If you can, you may want to re-introduce some stress-busting techniques into your routine. This might include having a balanced diet, taking part in at least one hour of daily exercise, and trying to get around eight hours of sleep every night.
  4. Ask for help – if you are comfortable to do so, you may be able to confide in a friend, colleague, or family member to make them aware of the circumstances you are experiencing. If you do not feel able to speak to a friend you may be able to contact our Student Advice service, or a trusted individual within your School such as a personal tutor.
  5. Meet new people – You may benefit from meeting new people and spending less time with the individual in question. At Cardiff University, there are a number of Clubs, Societies or Volunteering Groups available for you to get involved in to help you broaden your social circle.
  6. Be yourself – it is often easy to let bullish behaviour knock your confidence and stop you from taking part in the things you enjoy or acting in a certain way. It is important to remember that you are not the problem.
  7. Are you experiencing harassment?  Bullying and harassment are often confused. By law (Equality Act 2010), bullying behaviour can be harassment or a hate crime  if it relates to any of the following 'protected characteristics':
    • By law (Equality Act 2010), bullying behaviour can be harassment or a hate crime  if it relates to any of the following 'protected characteristics':

      • religion or belief
      • sex

  8. Keep safe online - It is estimated that one in every ten people in the UK become victims to online crime every year. From phishing emails to romance fraud to identity theft, cyber crime is growing fast. More information about keeping safe can be found here.

Supporting someone who is being bullied

Although it can be difficult, it is important to act if you are witness to bullying behaviour that may put another individual at risk. The support that you are able to provide to an individual may vary depending on your relationship with them, the type of bullying they are experiencing, and the impact that it is having on them.


Some of the ways that you may be able to help include:

  • Call 999 - If you witness physical abuse which is causing physical harm to an individual and requires urgent attention you should report the incident to the emergency services.
  • Disclosure Response Team – If you believe that the victim is experiencing bullying relating to sexual assault, rape, domestic violence, stalking, harassment or hate crime you can contact the University’s Disclosure Response Team. The Disclosure Response Team are a team of specialist University staff, trained to respond to disclosures of violence and abuse.
  • Student Intervention Team - If the situation involves a serious risk to others’ you can disclose a concern to the Student Intervention Team using this referral form. The Student Intervention Team is a confidential support service for students and operates on weekdays between 10:00 and 16:00. 
  • Provide pastoral support – It can be very difficult for a victim of bullying to reach out for support. If you notice that a friend or acquaintance is a recipient of bullying behaviour, they may appreciate being engaged in conversation with someone who has noticed and understood the situation. When engaging an individual in conversation, especially in difficult circumstances, you should avoid:
    • Forcing them into an uncomfortable conversation. Being bullied can be very damaging on your self-confidence and levels of anxiety, and they may not be ready to discuss this with you. If you can demonstrate that you are available and happy to talk, they may approach you for support in their own time.
    • Being judgemental. It is difficult to offer understanding if you do not understand, but if a victim of bullying is looking for support, it is important listen open-mindedly.
    • Condoning the bully’s behaviour. As mentioned previously, bullies often adopt violent or discriminatory behaviour as a result of their personal circumstances, but this does not make them any less responsible for their actions. When supporting a victim of bullying, it is important that you remind them that they are not to blame.
  • Supporting a victim of bullying online – Cyber bullying is increasingly common as it is difficult to hold individuals accountable for discriminatory or prejudice posts and comments. As a result, it is often easy to ignore and forget comments that are not directly aimed at you. However, in order to address cyber bullying, and to limit the impact and scope that these comments have on other members of the public, you can report comments, posts and images, that may be considered offensive. Although this may not always lead to the removal of offensive items, your actions may help to support others.


Disciplinary action

If you notice, or are a victim, of bullying behaviour from a Cardiff University student, you may wish to report them under the Student Conduct Procedure. Find out more about how to raise a concern about another student, here.


If you are reported for bullying, this may lead to disciplinary action. It is important to be aware of what the University expects of you in terms of conduct because, if your behaviour is deemed to breach requirements, you could be investigated under the Student Conduct Procedure.


If your behaviour is reported to the police or the local authorities, they may also choose to investigate the claim. Depending on the severity of the matter, this may contribute to an investigation of your behaviour under the Student Conduct Procedure, and if you are on a Professional Registration Course, an investigation under the Fitness to Practise procedure.

Bwlio ac Aflonyddu

Nid oes diffiniad cyfreithiol o fwlio, ond fel arfer fe'i hystyrir yn ymddygiad ailadroddus gyda'r bwriad o frifo unigolyn arall. Os ydych yn cael eich bwlio oherwydd eich hil, crefydd, rhyw, cyfeiriadedd rhywiol neu agwedd gorfforol arall, gellir ystyried hyn fel ymddygiad gwahaniaethol. Mewn achosion eithafol, gall bwlio sydd wedi’i hysgogi gan ragfarn gael ei ystyried yn drosedd casineb a gall yr awdurdodau lleol erlyn unigolyn sy’n gyfrifol am gyflawni troseddau casineb.


Nid yw bwlio ac aflonyddu byth yn iawn ac mae digon o gefnogaeth ar gael i chi. Mae Tîm Ymateb i Ddatgeliadau’r Brifysgol yn dîm o staff arbenigol, wedi'u hyfforddi i gefnogi'r rhai sy'n profi aflonyddu, troseddau casineb, trais rhywiol, cam-drin mewn perthynas a mathau eraill o ymddygiad annerbyniol. Byddant bob amser yn credu'r hyn a ddywedwch wrthynt.


Tîm Ymateb i Ddatgeliadau

Os ydych chi'n credu eich bod mewn perygl uniongyrchol neu'n poeni am eich diogelwch, dysgwch sut i gael rhagor o gymorth a chadwch eich hun yn ddiogel.


Cwblhewch y ffurflen datgeliad ar-lein i wneud datgeliad gyda’ch manylion personol neu’n ddienw.


Nod y Tîm Ymateb i Ddatgeliadau yw ymateb i bob datgeliad o fewn dau ddiwrnod gwaith, o fewn yr oriau 09:00-16:00, o ddydd Llun i ddydd Gwener, ac eithrio gwyliau banc.


Rydym yn deall y gall fod yn anodd ymddiried mewn pobl eraill i ddweud wrthynt beth sydd wedi digwydd. Mae rhai pryderon cyffredin o ran rhannu’r profiadau hyn yn cynnwys:

  • beth os nad oes neb yn fy nghredu?
  • beth os yw eraill yn fy meirniadu?
  • nid yw’r hyn sydd wedi digwydd imi mor wael â hynny
  • rwy’n adnabod yr unigolyn sy’n gyfrifol.


Eich dewis chi yw p'un a ydych yn dweud wrth rywun am eich profiadau ai peidio. Fodd bynnag, mae'n bwysig gwybod bod y brifysgol yn gallu eich cefnogi.


Mae'r Tîm Ymateb i Ddatgeliadau yn cymryd pob datgeliad o ddifrif a bydd yn credu'r hyn a ddywedwch wrthynt.


Mathau o Fwlio

Mae mathau amrywiol o fwlio y gallech fod yn destun iddynt. Gallai'r rhain gynnwys:

  • Ymosodiad corfforol– lle mae rhywun, neu grŵp o unigolion, yn achosi niwed corfforol i chi neu eich eiddo.
  • Bwlio cymdeithasol – allgáu cymdeithasol neu niweidio enw da neu dderbyniad cymdeithasol rhywun
  • Ymddygiad bygythiol– gweithredoedd bygythiol neu ystrywgar gyda’r bwriad o wneud i chi deimlo’n israddol neu dan fygythiad.
  • Galw enwau – Defnydd amhriodol o iaith i gyfeirio atoch chi neu rywun rydych yn agos ato.
  • Seiberfwlio– Cam-drin ar-lein wedi’i hwyluso drwy rwydweithiau cymdeithasol, gemau, ystafelloedd sgwrsio neu fforwm ar-lein.
  • Bwlio rhywiol– Lle mae rhywioldeb neu ryw yn cael ei ddefnyddio fel arf yn erbyn unigolyn arall.


Weithiau gall fod yn anodd penderfynu a ydych yn cael eich bwlio ai peidio gan ei bod yn anodd gwahaniaethu rhwng rhai mathau o fwlio a thynnu coes rhwng ffrindiau. Fodd bynnag, os ydych chi'n teimlo'n flinedig yn emosiynol ac yn gorfforol o ganlyniad i weithredoedd ailadroddus a niweidiol gan gyfoedion neu unigolyn, efallai y gwelwch fod eu hymddygiad yn ffurf ar fwlio. Os felly, mae gennych hawl i godi llais a cheisio cefnogaeth.



Mae seiberfwlio yn fwyfwy cyffredin wrth i fwy o bobl greu a chynnal hunaniaeth ar-lein naill ai trwy gyfryngau cymdeithasol, gemau, neu fforymau ar-lein. Seiberfwlio yw pan fydd rhywun yn cychwyn neu’n dioddef cam-drin trwy lwyfan ar-lein. Gall hyn fod yn frawychus a maleisus iawn gan ei bod yn aml yn haws i gyflawnwr fwlio eraill yn ddienw heb fawr o ôl-effeithiau, os o gwbl, am eu gweithredoedd.


Mae yna nifer cynyddol o lwyfannau ar-lein lle gall seiberfwlio ddigwydd felly mae’n bwysig iawn bod yn ofalus ac yn ystyriol pan fyddwch chi’n postio ar-lein, neu’n siarad ar ffurflen a rennir. Dyma rhai o’r apiau sy’n cael eu defnyddio’n gyffredin gan fyfyrwyr a allai hwyluso seiberfwlio:

  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • Messenger
  • Snapchat
  • Tiktok
  • Twitter
  • Whatsapp
  • Zoom


Os ydych chi'n gyfarwydd â'r apiau hyn, byddem yn eich cynghori'n gryf i'w defnyddio'n ofalus; o ystyried y pwyslais cynyddol a roddir ar fywyd ar-lein, mae’n bwysig eich bod yn ymwybodol o’r rhai yr ydych mewn cysylltiad digidol â nhw.


Mae nifer o ymddygiadau sy’n cael eu hystyried yn seiberfwlio ac rydym wedi rhestru rhai isod i chi fod yn ymwybodol ohonynt:

  • Aflonyddu– anfon negeseuon sy’n fwriadol sarhaus neu gamdriniol.
  • Difenwad– cylchredeg gwybodaeth ffug a niweidiol am unigolyn arall a/neu ledaenu delweddau amhriodol ac amhriodol o unigolyn heb yn wybod iddynt a heb eu caniatâd.
  • Fflamio– Defnyddio iaith eithafol ar-lein yn bwrpasol a chyfrannu at ddadleuon ar-lein gyda’r bwriad o sbarduno ymatebion emosiynol gan eraill.
  • Dynwared- Hacio i mewn i gyfrif neu broffil rhywun arall i bostio fel nhw heb eu caniatâd neu ganiatâd.
  • Datgelu heb gydsyniad a thwyll– Rhannu gwybodaeth bersonol pobl eraill ar-lein.
  • Seiber-stelcian– Anfon negeseuon bygythiol neu fygythiol dro ar ôl tro trwy lwyfan ar-lein at un unigolyn neu grŵp o unigolion.
  • Gwaharddiad– Gadael allan unigolyn/unigolion penodol o sgwrs, sgwrs neu dudalen gyda’r bwriad o’u gwahardd o grŵp cymdeithasol.


Os ydych yn pryderu y gallech fod wedi dioddef bwlio seiber, ystyriwch ein canllawiau ar sut i adfer ar ôl bwlio isod.


Yn nodedig, yn ogystal â’r rhestr o ymddygiadau bwlio seiberfwlio a restrir uchod, gall dynnu sgrinluniau, neu feddu ar ddelweddau rhywiol neu amhriodol hefyd gael ei ystyried yn seiberfwlio. Mae'n amhriodol, ac yn aml yn anghyfreithlon, meddu ar neu rannu llun rywiol o unigolyn neu lle mae unigolyn dan fygythiad heb eu caniatâd. Mae secstio, anfon a/neu dderbyn negeseuon rhywiol, yn ymddygiad cynyddol gyffredin ar lwyfannau negeseuon digidol. Er ei bod yn bosibl na fydd rhannu llun personol ag unigolyn y gellir ymddiried ynddo yn cael ei ystyried yn drosedd, gall rhannu delweddau pornograffig heb ganiatâd y person (neu os yw’r person hwnnw o dan 18) fod yn drosedd ac arwain at erlyniad.


Cael Help

Os ydych wedi sylwi eich bod yn cael eich trin mewn modd anaddas gan gydweithiwr, cyfoedion neu aelod o'r teulu, mae'n bosibl y gallech fod yn ddioddefwr bwlio. Nid yw'n anarferol i hyn wneud i chi deimlo'n flinedig yn gorfforol ac yn emosiynol ac mewn rhai achosion bydd hyn yn arwain at hwyliau isel. Os yw hyn yn wir, mae rhai pethau y gallwch chi geisio gwneud i chi'ch hun deimlo'n well a cheisio cymorth proffesiynol.

  1. Ymddiried yn eich greddf – gall fod yn anodd adnabod ymddygiadau bwlio, yn enwedig os ydych yn eu derbyn. Os byddwch chi'n dechrau sylwi bod rhywun yn gwneud i chi deimlo'n drist, yn nerfus neu mewn perygl dro ar ôl tro, dylech bob amser geisio cymorth.
  2. Edrychwch ar y darlun mawr – yn aml, mae pobl sy’n bwlio eraill yn gwneud hynny oherwydd ansicrwydd neu ddigwyddiadau sydd wedi digwydd yn eu bywyd personol. Nid yw hyn yn esgusodi eu hymddygiad, ond gallai eich helpu i dderbyn yr hyn y maent yn ei wneud, gyda’r bwriad o ddiogelu eich lles eich hun.
  3. Rheoli teimladau o straen - Os ydych chi'n cael eich bwlio, mae'n gyffredin teimlo eich bod chi'n rheoli lefel eithafol o straen - oherwydd eich bod chi! Gall teimladau o bryder a thristwch gynyddu eich lefelau straen a gwneud i dasgau bob dydd ymddangos yn anodd iawn ac weithiau'n amhosibl. Os gallwch, efallai y byddwch am ailgyflwyno rhai technegau chwalu straen yn eich trefn arferol. Gallai hyn gynnwys diet cytbwys, cymryd rhan mewn o leiaf awr o ymarfer corff bob dydd, a cheisio cael tua wyth awr o gwsg bob nos.
  4. Gofynnwch am help– os ydych chi’n gyfforddus i wneud hynny, efallai y byddwch chi’n gallu ymddiried mewn ffrind, cydweithiwr neu aelod o’r teulu i’w gwneud yn ymwybodol o’r amgylchiadau rydych chi’n eu profi. Os nad ydych yn teimlo y gallwch siarad â ffrind efallai y gallwch gysylltu â'n gwasanaeth Cyngor i Fyfyrwyr, neu unigolyn y gallwch ymddiried ynddo yn eich Ysgol megis tiwtor personol.
  5. Cwrdd â phobl newydd - Efallai y byddwch chi'n elwa o gwrdd â phobl newydd a threulio llai o amser gyda'r unigolyn dan sylw. Ym Mhrifysgol Caerdydd, mae nifer o Glybiau, Cymdeithasau neu Grwpiau Gwirfoddoli ar gael i chi gymryd rhan ynddynt i'ch helpu i ehangu eich cylch cymdeithasol.
  6. Byddwch yn chi’ch hun – yn aml mae’n hawdd gadael i ymddygiad ymosodol effeithio ar eich hyder a’ch atal rhag cymryd rhan yn y pethau rydych yn eu mwynhau neu ymddwyn mewn ffordd arbennig. Mae'n bwysig cofio nad chi yw'r broblem.


Mathau eraill o gymorth

  • Cwnsela a Lles – os gwelwch fod yr ymddygiad bwlio yn cael effaith andwyol ar eich lles meddyliol, efallai y byddwch am gael mynediad i’r gefnogaeth sydd ar gael gan wasanaeth Cwnsela a Lles Prifysgol Caerdydd. Os ydych chi'n teimlo bod eich iechyd meddwl wedi dod yn anodd i ymdopi â hi, byddem yn eich cynghori i gysylltu â'ch meddyg teulu hefyd.
  • Swyddog Cyswllt Myfyrwyr – Os ydych yn gyfforddus i wneud hynny, efallai y byddwch am gysylltu â Swyddog Cyswllt Myfyrwyr Prifysgol Caerdydd i'w gwneud yn ymwybodol o ymddygiad yr unigolyn dan sylw. Ei gyfeiriad cyswllt yw
  • Cyngor ar Bopeth – mae Cyngor ar Bopeth hefyd yn rhoi arweiniad ar sut i roi gwybod am gamdriniaeth os ydych yn teimlo’n anniogel.


Cyngor i Fyfyrwyr

Gall Cyngor i Fyfyrwyr hefyd roi cyngor a chymorth ymarferol i chi. Gallwn roi cyngor ar dai ac unrhyw oblygiadau o'r bwlio ar eich astudiaethau. Os yw’r troseddwr yn fyfyriwr Prifysgol Caerdydd, gallwn roi cyngor ar sut i wneud cwyn yn ei erbyn i’r Brifysgol. Gallwn eich cefnogi gyda’ch cwyn a chynghori ar gyflwyno amgylchiadau esgusodol neu gohirio astudiaethau os bydd angen.


Os yw eich amgylchiadau yn effeithio ar eich lles a/neu eich gallu i astudio a pherfformio ar eich lefel arferol, gallwn


Cefnogi rhywun sy'n cael ei fwlio

Er y gall fod yn anodd, mae’n bwysig gweithredu os ydych yn dyst i ymddygiad bwlio a allai roi unigolyn arall mewn perygl. Gall y cymorth y gallwch ei roi i unigolyn amrywio yn dibynnu ar eich perthynas â nhw, y math o fwlio y maen nhw’n ei brofi, a’r effaith y mae’n ei chael arnynt.


Mae rhai o’r ffyrdd y gallech chi helpu yn cynnwys:

  • Ffoniwch 999 - Os ydych yn gweld cam-drin corfforol sy'n achosi niwed corfforol i unigolyn ac sydd angen sylw brys, dylech roi gwybod i'r gwasanaethau brys am y digwyddiad.
  • Tîm Ymateb i Ddatgeliad – Os ydych yn credu bod y dioddefwr yn dioddef bwlio yn ymwneud ag ymosodiad rhywiol, treisio, trais domestig, stelcian, aflonyddu neu drosedd casineb gallwch gysylltu â Thîm Ymateb i Ddatgeliadau’r Brifysgol. Staff arbenigol yn y Brifysgol sydd wedi cael eu hyfforddi i ymateb i ddatgeliadau o drais a cham-drin yw'r Tîm Ymateb i Ddatgeliadau.
  • Tîm Ymyrraeth Myfyrwyr - Os yw'r sefyllfa'n cynnwys risg difrifol i eraill, gallwch ddatgelu pryder i'r Tîm Ymyrraeth Myfyrwyr gan ddefnyddio'r ffurflen atgyfeirio hon. Mae'r Tîm Ymyrraeth Myfyrwyr yn wasanaeth cymorth cyfrinachol i fyfyrwyr ac mae'n gweithredu yn ystod yr wythnos rhwng 10:00 a 16:00. 
  • Darparu cefnogaeth fugeiliol – Gall fod yn anodd iawn i ddioddefwr bwlio estyn allan am gefnogaeth. Os byddwch chi'n sylwi bod ffrind neu rhywun rydych chi’n ei adnabod yn dioddef o ymddygiad bwlio, efallai y bydd yn gwerthfawrogi cael sgwrs gyda rhywun sydd wedi sylwi ar y sefyllfa a'i deall. Wrth ymgysylltu ag unigolyn mewn sgwrs, yn enwedig mewn amgylchiadau anodd, dylech osgoi:
  • Eu gorfodi i mewn i sgwrs anghyfforddus. Gall cael eich bwlio fod yn niweidiol iawn i’ch hunanhyder a’ch lefelau o bryder, ac efallai na fyddant yn barod i drafod hyn gyda chi. Os gallwch ddangos eich bod ar gael ac yn hapus i siarad, efallai y byddant yn dod atoch am gymorth yn eu hamser eu hunain.
  • Bod yn feirniadol. Mae’n anodd cynnig dealltwriaeth os nad ydych yn deall, ond os yw dioddefwr bwlio yn chwilio am gefnogaeth, mae’n bwysig gwrando â meddwl agored.
  • Goddef ymddygiad y bwli. Fel y soniwyd eisoes, mae bwlis yn aml yn mabwysiadu ymddygiad treisgar neu wahaniaethol o ganlyniad i'w hamgylchiadau personol, ond nid yw hyn yn eu gwneud yn llai cyfrifol am eu gweithredoedd. Wrth gefnogi rhywun sy’n dioddef bwlio, mae’n bwysig eich bod yn eu hatgoffa nad nhw sydd ar fai.
  • Cefnogi rhywun sy’n dioddef bwlio ar-lein– Mae seiberfwlio yn fwyfwy cyffredin gan ei bod yn anodd mynnu bod unigolion yn atebol am negeseuon a sylwadau gwahaniaethol neu ragfarnllyd. O ganlyniad, mae'n aml yn hawdd anwybyddu ac anghofio sylwadau nad ydynt wedi'u hanelu'n uniongyrchol atoch chi. Fodd bynnag, er mwyn mynd i’r afael â bwlio seiber, ac i gyfyngu ar yr effaith a’r cwmpas a gaiff y sylwadau hyn ar aelodau eraill o’r cyhoedd, gallwch roi gwybod am sylwadau, cynnwys a delweddau, a allai gael eu hystyried yn sarhaus. Er efallai na fydd hyn bob amser yn arwain at gael gwared ar eitemau sarhaus, efallai y bydd eich gweithredoedd yn helpu i gefnogi eraill.


Perthnasoedd camdriniol

Yn anffodus, nid yw'n anghyffredin i fwlio ddigwydd o fewn perthynas ramantus neu rywiol. Yn yr amgylchiadau hyn, mae'n aml yn anodd adnabod ymddygiad camdriniol neu fwlio, neu ddianc o'r berthynas.


Gall bwlio mewn perthynas ddigwydd mewn sawl ffurf wahanol. Mae rhai o’r mathau mwyaf cyffredin o gam-drin mewn perthynas yn cynnwys:

  • Bwlio emosiynol;
  • Cam-drin geiriol;
  • Cam-drin corfforol;
  • Rheoli ymddygiadau; a
  • Bwlio rhywiol.


Gall bwlio rhywiol amrywio o ddefnyddio iaith ddiraddiol a rhywiol i drin unigolyn yn rhywiol, i roi pwysau ar unigolyn i wneud iddynt ymddwyn yn ‘promiscuous’.


Mae’n gyffredin i unigolyn sy’n profi, neu sydd wedi profi, perthynas gamdriniol deimlo cywilydd, ond mae’n bwysig derbyn nad yw’r ymddygiadau hyn yn normal nac yn dderbyniol. I gael rhagor o gyngor ar Drais, Cam-drin a Pherthnasoedd Afiach a'r cymorth sydd ar gael, gweler ein tudalen we yma.


Fel uchod, mae’r Tîm Ymateb i Ddatgeliadau yma i ddarparu’r cymorth a’r gefnogaeth sydd eu hangen arnoch.


Camau disgyblu

Os ydych chi’n sylwi ar, neu os ydych wedi dioddef ymddygiad bwlio gan fyfyriwr o Brifysgol Caerdydd, efallai yr hoffech roi gwybod amdanynt o dan y Weithdrefn Ymddygiad Myfyrwyr. Dysgwch fwy am sut i fynegi pryder am fyfyriwr arall, yma.


Os cewch chi eich riportio am fwlio, gall hyn arwain at gamau disgyblu. Mae’n bwysig bod yn ymwybodol o’r hyn y mae’r Brifysgol yn ei ddisgwyl gennych o ran ymddygiad oherwydd, os bernir bod eich ymddygiad yn torri gofynion, gellid ymchwilio i chi o dan y Weithdrefn Ymddygiad Myfyrwyr.


Os caiff eich ymddygiad ei adrodd i'r heddlu neu'r awdurdodau lleol, efallai y byddant hefyd yn dewis ymchwilio i'r hawliad. Gan ddibynnu ar ddifrifoldeb y mater, gallai hyn gyfrannu at ymchwiliad i’ch ymddygiad o dan y Weithdrefn Ymddygiad Myfyriwr, ac os ydych ar Gwrs Cofrestru Proffesiynol, ymchwiliad o dan y weithdrefn Addasrwydd i Ymarfer.
