What we do
Founded in 1985, Kidscape was the first charity in the UK
established specifically to prevent bullying and child sexual
abuse. We are a small organisation with far-reaching influence,
committed to sharing our insights and techniques with other
organisations and individuals all over the world.
Kidscape believes that all children should be able to grow up in
a world free from bullying and abuse, and that all adults should
keep children safe and help them to reach their full potential.
The mission of Kidscape is to ensure children live in a safe and
nurturing environment. By providing training, support and advice to
children, parents, schools and those in professional contact with
young people, we enable them to gain knowledge and develop the
confidence and skills to challenge abuse and bullying in all its
Our values are based on the beliefs that:
- All children have the right to lead their lives free from
bullying and abuse.
- All adults have a responsibility to support, nurture and care
for children enabling them to reach their full potential.
- All children should have the opportunity and confidence to
report bullying and abuse.
- Bullying and abuse in all forms are not acceptable and should
not be tolerated.
- Children, confidentiality and trust are at the heart of
everything we do.
Who we help
The people we help are from every age group: children and young
people from 6 to 19, concerned parents and grandparents, teachers
and carers. And they come from every background and every part of
the country: from inner-London comprehensives and from public
schools; from rural villages and from major cities. The children we
work with aren't all being bullied - some of them are bullies
themselves, and need help to stop.
Whatever the situation, we listen without judgement and offer
sound advice based on years of experience and the counsel of some
of the most experienced and respected psychologists in the
