This is where young people can share their thoughts about bullying
Published: Tuesday, 28 May, 2019
A leading voice for young people in the Stroud district is reaching out to discover how effectively bullying is dealt with.
Stroud District Youth Council (SDYC) is the recognised active voice for young people in the Stroud district and strives to represent 12,500 11 to 18-year-olds and seeks to give a democratic voice to the young people in the Stroud district.
The youth council is undertaking consultation, to understand young peoples’ thoughts and opinions surrounding bullying and how bullying is dealt with, in schools, their community, and at home.
SDYC’s dedicated Anti Bullying Project Team has designed a survey, and the results will be used to influence positive changes.
“The launch of this survey is the next step for our dedicated project which SDYC members have worked incredibly hard on over the last year, after identifying a need for more awareness surrounding all types of bullying amongst young people,” said SDYC Chair, Helen March.
“We have already picked up a lack of support across the district for those affected. Therefore it's important that we hear from as many young people as possible, as we want to be able to gather a realistic amount of evidence in order to develop a district wide anti-bullying policy that is able to help as many young people as possible.”
