  • To support children and young people to use their Power for Good – by understanding the ways in which they are powerfuland encouraging individual and collective action to stop bullying and create the best world possible.

  • To help parents and carers to use their Power for Good – through supporting children with issues relating to bullying and working together with schools to stop bullying.

  • To encourage all teachers, school support staff and youth workers to use their Power for Good – by valuing the difference they can make in a child’s life, and taking individual and collective action to prevent bullying and create safe environments where children can thrive.
