With the growth of social media and the average age of children owning smartphones set at 10, there is a need for more education and information about how to prevent cyberbullying from happening and what to do when it does.
Together with Anti-bullying Alliance and the National Children’s Bureau, we’ve created a cyberbullying resource which explains the different forms of cyberbullying, their impact on children and importantly what parents, carers and schools can do to help a child deal with it.
Hosted by the National Children’s Bureau (NCB), the Anti-bullying Alliance (ABA) brings together organisations and individuals with a shared vision to stop bullying between children and young people.
ABA coordinates Anti-Bullying Week each November and leads on high profile programmes to reduce levels of bullying. ABA looks to transform research into practice to improve the lives of children and young people.www.anti-bullyingalliance.org.uk.
