All children and young people who live, go to school, work or socialise in Lancashire have the right to go about their daily lives without the fear of being bullied.
This is the clear message behind Lancashire’s anti-bullying charter.
The anti-bullying charter was drawn up by officers from Lancashire County Council’s children and young people’s service and representatives from the Lancashire Youth Council. It was officially launched at a conference in Chorley during anti-bullying week earlier this month.
The charter makes it clear that tackling bullying is not just an issue for schools, but also for parents and carers and all organisations working with children and young people, and the wider community.
