Campaign: To raise awareness of the effects of bullying on people with disabilities

I was bullied at school for having a disability. It made me reluctant to attend and I felt hurt and lonely.


It wasn’t until I took the step of telling my teachers what was happening that the bullying stopped.


I’m at college now and am enjoying life.


With Fixers, I want to help stamp out the bullying experienced by young people with disabilities.


I want to encourage anyone who sees it happening not just to feel sorry for someone but to step in and stand up to it.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:
