Kidscape’s approach involves the whole family. We provide an advice line for parents and carers concerned about bullying, giving practical advice, support and guidance for navigating the complex waters of supporting their children and dealing with schools. Parents also receive an expert advice session at a ZAP workshop to empower them to handle the challenges.
We also train professionals and school students in how to challenge and prevent bullying in schools.
If you are affected by bullying in any way, Kidscape is with you.

In the longer term, 90% of children experience an improvement in mental health and three-quarters experience less bullying.
