Give Us a Break Campaign
Give Us a Break our ongoing antibullying campaign
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’. For the last few years during National Anti-Bullying Week our Give Us a Break is a 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.
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.
