Situation

Bullying is a widespread problem that can have significant effects on children's lives. Approximately 16,000 children aged 11-15 are absent from school at any one time due to bullying and around half of 12 year olds who harm themselves are bullied. In particular we are deeply concerned about the use of the new technologies e.g. internet and mobile phones to bully or harass (commonly referred to as cyberbullying), as it is reported that a quarter of young people have been victimised in this way.

Solution

Anti-Bullying Week will allow us to reach millions of children with a fresh campaign for preventing and responding to bullying. Our theme this year is specifically around cyberbullying. Our free information and campaign packs for schools, colleges, youth groups, young offender institutes and children's homes will provide adults who work directly with children with the knowledge and skills to identify, prevent and respond to cyberbullying.
