 When young people of the Young Wales Anti Bullying Network were asked to name one thing they wanted to prioritise about bullying they said:

“We just want someone to care”

Is that really too much to ask?

Regardless of ‘bullying being everyone’s business’ and having a responsibility to intervene through prevention methods, enforcement through policies and consequnces and restorative practices it is still happening – you could contemplate

‘Is it getting worse?’

You are invited to come along to this free event to tell us your thoughts on how we can improve anti bullying work across Wales – help us shape our proposals to initiate change that will show children and young people that others do care and that we feel equipped to help them!

 

At this event you will hear from:

Sarah Thomas, Children in Wales and the Young Wales Project http://www.youngwales.wales introducing the day and setting the anti bullying scene.

Averil Petley, Welsh Government would like to hear from you about what you feel are particular issues that should be addressed in any new guidance produced by Welsh Government and what format would new guidance be most helpful in.

Sunil Patel, Show Racism the Red Card http://www.srtrc.org will share the interesting results of their latest survey to teachers.

Shan Jones, Actus Education Cymru http://www.actus.wales sharing her views and experiences of working in the anti bullying field and giving us some ideas for anti bullying week.
