Bullying intervention training shortlisted for Charity Awards
We are excited to announce that Kidscape has been shortlisted for the Charity Awards 2015. This is a highly prestigious programme, which recognises excellence within the charity sector.
"For 16 years the Charity Awards have been identifying and celebrating the fantastic work that UK charities do, and the rigorous judging process ensures that only the very best-run charities make it through. The standard was excellent, so Kidscape should be very proud to have made the shortlist," said Tania Mason, group editor at Civil Society Media.
Our hugely successful Primary BIT project has been shortlisted for the Children and Youth award category. This project, funded by the Department for Education, provides free support and early intervention anti-bullying training to primary school professionals and children in London. Over 200 schools have already taken part, with 97 per cent of professionals reporting that they feel more confident in preventing and dealing with bullying. 85 per cent of schools have observed that their pupils have a better understanding of positive ways to deal with conflict.
Claude Knights, Kidscape's CEO stated: "It is an honour to be shortlisted for this year's Charity Awards, and we are thrilled that our Primary BIT project has been recognised alongside other respected projects and organisations. This shortlisting is a reflection of the hard work and commitment by a brilliant team at Kidscape. We are also immensely grateful to all the participant schools for their enthusiasm for the project."
We are now entering a new exciting phase of the project having successfully obtained further funding from the Department for Education. This is allowing us to work with primary schools in Brent, Camden, Lewisham and Westminster from September.
We invite primary schools from Brent, Camden, Lewisham and Westminster to take up this offer of free training and support. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7730 3300 for details.
