Why is BulliesOut so important?
Over half of the UK’s children and young people and 1 in 3 adults report being bullied on a regular basis. Bullying creates a culture of fear and has a negative impact on everyone involved. Being bullied can seriously affect a person’s physical, emotional, academic and social well-being. Many sufferers of bullying lack confidence, feel bad about themselves, have few friends and spend a lot of time alone. Bullying is a very stressful ordeal, one that many people find it hard to speak about.
Those being bullied continually ask why me? They may feel ashamed and embarrassed that they are not standing up to the bully and deal with what is happening to them.
Bullying can have devastating effects on a person which can last into adulthood. At its worst, bullying has driven children and young people to selfharm and even suicide.
At BulliesOut, in addition to our e-mentoring support, we provide innovative, engaging and interactive anti-bullying workshops and training programmes that are developed to reduce bullying in schools and the workplace; change attitudes and behaviours, recognise and respect difference, understand impact and consequences and raise confidence and self-esteem.
Why does BulliesOut need your help?
As a charity, we do not receive any government funding and rely on donations and fundraising activities to continue our vital work. With the support from people like you we can continue to change attitudes and behaviours and help create a better future for those affected by bullying.
