Everyone has the right to be happy and if someone is making you feel unhappy, uncomfortable, small, scared and/or worthless then it must be addressed immediately. If you or someone you know is being bullied, then it’s very important that you discuss this with someone – this could be a teacher, tutor, social worker, your manager (if it’s happening in work) or your parents or guardians.
Please see below a list of organisations and charities that can offer you support, advice and guidance if you’ve been affected by any kind of bullying.
Cyber bullying is a big problem in today’s society where we are socially connected 24/7. See Bullies Out’s page on cyber bullying. Please also see our ‘Internet & Social Media’ section for additional information on staying safe online.
You can call The Samaritans at any time for free on 116 123 to discuss any issues or problems you may have. You can also chat online with someone from Meic or call the helpline on 0808 80 23456.
