Bullying has always been around but in past years it mostly took place in the playground. For young people bullying can now be 24/7 leaving them with very little escape due to social media and gaming. Being bullied at school, home or online might involve someone:
- pushing you
- hitting you
- teasing you
- talking about you or calling you names
Nobody has the right to hurt you or make you feel bad and there is a lot of support out there if you are a young person experiencing bullying, or a parent or carer worried about your child or children being bullied online or offline.
Report Bullying or harassment online through the Report Harmful Content website.
If you need further support or advice around bullying have a look at the Anti Bullying Alliance website.
