18–22 November is Anti-Bullying Week and we'd like to hear your tips on how to beat bullying.
Sadly young people with special educational needs or disabilities are significantly more likely to experience bullying than others. Here is a film made by a young member of Trendsetters, a project run by Scope for young disabled people. She wanted to send out a positive message about stopping bullying, which is ...
"If you are being bullied, or know someone who is, tell someone."
Please share your tips on how to beat bullying in the comments box below. In the meantime, here are some positive thoughts from the Trendsetters:
"Be a strong person within yourself, believe in yourself and always have confidence in expressing your emotions."
"Bullying can happen anywhere so don't let anyone take advantage of you. You have the right to say no to anything and you have the right to be yourself."
