HWRK backing BulliesOut! Why we are backing the nationwide anti-bullying charity every step of the way School-age bullying is a serious societal concern that affects the lives of half of the UK’s children and young people. Going to school can be fun, but it can be stressful too. Learning new concepts, taking standardised tests, making new friends, and then perhaps losing some of those friends and negotiating your way in the world for the first time. Add bullying to the mix, and the pressures multiply exponentially. Most school-age children want to be liked by their peers but being subjected to taunts and mockery unnecessarily sullies a child’s learning environment by adding daily anxiety and uncertainty about what will happen from one day to the next. BulliesOut aims to initiate and support efforts to create a safe, healthy and learning community which recognises, respects and celebrates diversity. A key theme is creating an environment that improves the social, emotional and academic wellbeing across settings where children and young people, parents and professionals alike feel confident in dealing with bullying and have faith that appropriate action will be taken if instances are reported.

AWARENESS Bullying is often talked about but can also be misunderstood. Developing a fuller awareness of how bullying can manifest, how it can be prevented and how it should be dealt with, will help both sufferers and perpetrators disengage from the bullying cycle. TRAINING BulliesOut provides unique and interactive training courses for youth, parents, education professionals and the workplace.
