Over 100 young people from local schools in Nottingham received training and shared tips on how to prevent bullying in their schools and communities on Tuesday 2nd July.
The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Programme Training Officer Elisha Roberts lead the organisation’s training day. This is a nationwide peer led initiative with over 5000 trained Ambassadors in over 600 UK schools.
Alex Holmes, Programme Manager said: “As a former victim of bullying I know how isolated and unhappy a young person can feel when they are being targeted and I am passionate about helping these people.”
Six of our current Year 12 students took part in this event and as Anti-Bullying Ambassadors will be running workshops with Year 7 pupils as part of Anti-Bullying week which takes place in November.
The Diana Award was established in 1999 in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales, as a legacy to her belief in the power of young people to change the world.
