Schools and youth settings can get involved in the project by hosting a Reach workshop. Working with your young people we can stage a one-off workshop which will allow them to explore their experiences of homophobic, sexist and cyerbullying. Alternatively, we can deliver a series of workshops working towards a contribution to the resource. This could be a film, animation, podcast, or e-campaign. Anything that will allow the voice of your young people to be heard on this important issue. All sessions are free of charge, and run by our CRB checked staff.Not only do these events inform a groundbreaking resource, but they raise awareness about the issue and give participating agencies valuable insight into their young people’s experiences. This could help inform existing anti-bullying initiatives and equality campaigns. In addition, workshops could be an opportunity for your school to celebrate LGBT History Month
(February), Safer Internet Day
(5th February), Women’s History Month
(March), International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia
(17th May) or simply incorporated as part of your regular programme.
Reach has already engaged with hundreds of young people in North Somerset, Bristol, South Gloucestershire and beyond: gathering their opinions and experiences of homophobic, sexist and cyberbullying. You can see some of the materials we have produced so far on our portfolio page.
We are continuing to deliver events and activities throughout 2013 to ensure we fully understand young people’s experiences of bullying and engage with the broadest spectrum of young people. To arrange a Reach workshop in your setting contact:firstname.lastname@example.org
I am strongly against any form of bullying and believe it is extremely important for people who are being bullied to have a good support network. I would like to make a difference and help to stop bullying.
