Findings of Annual Bullying Survey 2015 Announced

Charity Ditch the Label have announced the findings of their Annual Bullying Survey foir 2015.

The survey of 3,600 young people in the UK between the ages of 13-18 revealed that:
  • 51% of young people have been bullied because of their appearance
  • 26% of young people have been bullied because of their weight
  • 13% of teens have been bullied by a teacher
Commenting on the findings from Ditch the Label's report, Sue Minto Head of ChildLine said:

"These figures are shocking and correlate with what we are hearing from young people here at ChildLine. In 2013/2014 we held over 5,000 counselling sessions with young people who spoke about body image issues - the majority of which took place with girls.

"Young people told us that bullying, name-calling and being victimised about weight often led to them developing body image issues – and sadly they strongly believed that by changing their body it would result in them being socially accepted."

Wednesday, 15 April 2015

The University of Bedfordshire's International Centre has published a research report "Families and Communities Against Child Sexual Exploitation".

The report found that direct work with parents and carers, as well as with children at risk of sexual exploitation, can reduce the risk of harm to a child and improve relationships at home. Community outreach and engagement is vital when raising awareness, so that the information provided and approach used by those preventing and tackling child sexual exploitation (CSE) reflects the communities they serve.

  • the year of publication
  • the page number
  • put "quotation marks" around the quote
E.G.: Morris (2010, p.69) asserts that "black waterproof Indian ink is the first choice of most illustrators".
