“Children and young people have the right to receive their educationfree from oppression, humiliation and abuse.” A firm belief in thisstatement prompted Linda James to set up Bullies Out, a website whichoffers support and advice to any children who are suffering frombullying. Including a forum, resources for parents and links to otheranti-bullying organisations, the site helps victims feel less isolatedand alone.
“My son had gone through a traumatic time as a result of bullying,“explains Linda. “I wanted to speak with others who had gone through thesame experience and find out how they had dealt with the situation. Idecided to launch a website with a message forum attached so thatpeople could share their experiences and get advice.”
Since its launch, the website has already received over 2,000 hits. TheBullies Out team have recently been approached by local schools who arelooking for help to stamp out bullying. Future plans for the projectinclude setting up local drop-in centres, places where young people canmeet and get helpful advice from an experienced listener.
Linda is keen to encourage anyone suffering from bullying to takeaction. “Please don’t try to cope alone because it won’t just go away.Seek help. Talk to someone you can trust. Remember, it’s not yourfault. No one deserves to be bullied.”
