Young people from your forum, organisation, project or school chose anti-bullying and hate crime as one of their six priorities to be taken forward by Young Wales. So we would now like to set up a young people’s Anti-bullying Network and to start with an “Ideas Workshop” to explore the key issues and discuss how the Network will work. It will have direct links to the Welsh Government’s All Wales Anti-Bullying Leadership Group, and will be supported by members of the Children in Wales Preventing Bullying Behaviour Group.
