What it's like BEING ME!

Being Me   Fanned Covers X 5 900pxFive easy ways to promote understanding and inclusion in your class during anti-bullying week.

To kick of Kidscape's 30th anniversary celebrations the charity has teamed up with four other national charities (Carers Trust, Diversity Role Models, Potential Plus and The National Autistic Society ) to create a unique anti-bullying resource for schools. 

Called Being Me, the initiative - via easy-read articles designed for 9 - 13 year-olds - gives a voice to the hundreds of thousands of children at the worst end of bullying and allows them to share their stories of hope and understanding with their peers. Their diaries tell us what if feels like to be bullied, to be a young carer, autistic, exceptionally gifted and ostracised as a result, or at the end of homophobic bullying - and their stories for the class talk of the role of tolerance, understanding and - crucially - education in helping their peers understand each other, and the value of difference, more. These publications are not only designed to help the bullied, but enrich the lives of all children in anti-bullying week and beyond. To view and download the resource (free of charge) visit http://www.kidscape.org.uk/beingme. Anti-bullying week runs from November 17-21st.
