Addressing Bullying – The NI Anti-Bullying Forum

21m | Nov 14, 2022

How can we address prejudice-based bullying and challenge stereotypes in education? Northern Ireland Anti-Bullying Forum co-ordinator Aoife Nic Colaim tells broadcaster Maggie Taggart about the work of the Forum in tackling this problem. She outlines the achievements of the forum and is joined by three members of the Forum’s Young Person Advisory Group, Christo, Lorcan and Sean, who explain why they got involved in the Forum and why they see it as important to promote an anti-bullying culture in schools.

Policy officer Aisha O’Reilly explains why the Equality Commission is interested in prejudice-based bullying and what it wants to see schools doing to tackle prejudice-based bullying and challenge stereotypes. This series of podcasts looks in more detail at some of those areas.
