Online bullying can have serious consequences in the real world. You've come to the right place for information. This section includes resources for Schools and Partners.

Advice on Cyberbullying and online harassment

We're working with a number of charities, schools, care professionals, spokespeople and other partners to share information about cyberbullying and online harassment.

We want to offer the support and guidance young people (and their families) need to tackle online abuse, which can have a serious impact on those involved. 

On our cyberbullying pages you'll find:

  • advice for adults and for young people
  • an interview with Worcester mum Lucy Alexander whose son, Felix, took his own life after years of online bullying
  • downloadable images, ideal for sharing on social media
  • links to further sources of information and help.

 

Cyberbullying animations

We put this animation together to show how cruel cyberbullying can be. They are taken from conversations that people have had online. Please share these important messages.
