North Tyneside Council’s Young Mayor and Youth Councillors have raised bullying as an important issue after speaking with other young people in their schools and colleges. Through some of the young people’s own experience of being bullied, our Young Mayor and Youth Councillors have made this a pledge on their election.

Using this information, the Participation and Advocacy Team secured funding from the Police and Crime Commissioner to develop an Anti-Bullying campaign aimed at children and young people in North Tyneside. 

The funding is aimed at 11-19 year olds; however we have also been working with some first and primary schools as they too play an active role in raising awareness of bullying at a different level and contribute to the preventative agenda.
