I just wanted to make you aware of the free ZAP workshops that Kidscape deliver in London, The Midlands and the North East. It is for children and young people aged 9 – 16 and is a fun, interactive day that encourages the development of assertiveness skills and raises young people’s confidence so that they are able to deal with bullying situations effectively. Parents/carers also attend an afternoon session where they are given expert knowledge of how to effectively support their child.

Building confidence is one of our key messages – there’ s no point understating something if you don’t have the confidence to address it. For people who are being bullied (of all ages) the damage to confidence can take decades to be repaired.
Great to know about and please feel free to post any additional info, resources etc. for everyone. You can also start a group within i-Safeguard if you would like to build a local / national network of connections.
