ZAP anti-bullying and assertiveness workshops
ZAP is a FREE one-day workshop for children and young people
aged 9-16 who have experienced bullying, funded by the Big Lottery
It is a fun, interactive day that encourages the development of
assertiveness skills and raises young people's confidence so that
they are able to deal with bullying situations effectively.
Parents and carers also attend a separate workshop on the day
where they are given expert knowledge of how to effectively support
The format of ZAP workshops for both young people and parents
are informal and approached in a way that encourages involvement.
Skills are learnt through interactive activities and the ethos of
the workshop is based on acceptance and friendship, which enables
even the most nervous and withdrawn child to feel comfortable in
The ZAP team run workshops at three different
venues: Birmingham, London
and Newcastle upon Tyne.
