The Scottish Executive Wants Your Views!
Ministerial Call To Young People

At the National Anti-Bullying Conference Jack McConnell appealed directly to young people. He called on them to help combat bullying by sharing their experiences and views with the Scottish Executive. A copy of his speech can be found in the Conference Papers sent to all schools or on our website by following this link here.


Channel 4 wants to hear from you!
The Director of a Channel Four programme has asked us to ask for volunteers willing to talk about text bullying. Children should remember that they will need written permission from their parents or guardians before they can appear on a TV programme. Also, some young people who have appeared on TV to talk about how they have been bullied, have been bullied even more as a result. Of course, appearing on TV can help to highlight an issue and to make it less likely that others will suffer in the same way, but parents and young people should only agree to this if they believe that there is little or no chance of things getting worse as a result. If you want to discuss this with us before contacting Channel 4, post a message in our bullybox
