Webinar – Empowering young people to speak out about bullying
Supporting this year’s Anti-Bullying Week the NSPCC and CPSU are providing a webinar that focuses on the theme ‘Power for Good’.
Date: 17 November 2016, 11am
Booking: Please visit the webinar registration page
This webinar will look at the ways all organisations can empower both adults and children to speak out about bullying and challenge unwanted behaviour when they see it. This will build on the role of the bystander and look at ways organisations can be more proactive.
For more information on Anti-Bullying week, 14-18 November, visit the Anti-Bullying Alliance website.
These activities are designed to help young people in your sports club understand the negative implications of bullying. They are just suggestions, so you can amend and develop these as you feel appropriate, or make them relevant to your own sport.
You may want to use the activities as part of training events or workshops, or in youth forums.
