Give Us A Break - Anti bullying Campaign#GIVEUSABREAK
For the last few years during National Anti Bullying Week our Give Us A Break is an national ongoing campaign that Anna Kennedy Online continue to highlight. Bullying affects so many children and adults and the results can be damaging for them and everyone around them. If you are suffering, speak up, and if you see it, stand up to it. Please share, even if this makes a difference to one person.
Anna Kennedy Online once again call on all schools and colleges to be particularly aware of the bullying that children and individuals on the Autism spectrum experience at break times and to provide positive activities that keep them safe. For children and young people with autism, break and lunch times in schools and colleges can be particularly daunting and can put them at risk of bullying.

Anna Kennedy Online, the UK Charity, is to continue raising awareness, and training on autism, to prevent bullying of children with autism in our schools and colleges with our campaign ‘Give us a Break!’ Too often these children are seen as the problem; as not ‘fitting in’ or ‘not settling down’. We want to see all schools take decisive action to create environments and cultures where all children feel safe and supported without the fear of bullying at schools, cyber bullying, and within the community.
There have been some horrific cases in the media and we as a Charity continue to campaign to raise awareness with this growing concern exacerbated further by mate crime, cyber bullying, which has led to some tragic outcomes. We have great support and some inspiring videos which can be seen below.

Please take a look at our video campaigns, which are all very powerful and sent out the same message: Give Us A Break!
FMA + 12 Gage are a father and son rap duo who use their music to combat their mental health issues. The pair are made up of Matthew Bennett who is now 40 years old and Callum Gage Bennett who is 21.The song is built around a message of hope, and in turn, FMA + 12 Gage hope that it connects with those who are struggling like they once were.
Callum drew upon his experiences of dealing with an abusive, bullying step parent when he was younger and Matthew looked to his early life and struggles with addiction and isolation as sources of inspiration.Both vocalists stepped out of their comfort zone to deliver a softer more emotional song than the ones that they normally create.
