Community Games Supporting Anti-Bullying Week
17th November to 23rd November 2014
Monday marks the beginning of Anti-Bullying Week. During this week we would like to ask all coaches, volunteers and parents to think about what you can do to end bullying in your Area, community and/or school. As a child centred organisation it is important that we create a supportive environment where it is not acceptable to bully and where we encourage an ethos that it is ‘ok to tell’- Please click here to see our anti-bullying policy.
For more information about Anti-Bullying Week and to get ideas on how you can take a stand against all forms of bullying, visit the NIABF website - www.endbullying.org.uk
The Child Protection in Sport Unit is holding a FREE webinair about empowering sport to tackle bullying. If you would like to register to take part in this please go to this website.
