Campaign: Beating Cyber-Bullying

Cyber-bullying is a very real problem and something that needs to be dealt with.

 

Social media is very popular among young people but it can also be dangerous.

 

My group of Fixers and I want to educate young people on the support services available when cyber-bullying occurs because it's a big issue, and young people can feel alone when being bullied.

 

We hope by making a viral video with Fixers we can show that cyber-bullying is just as bad as being a bully in real life and encourage victims to seek the help they need.

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

 

Claire Murray

Andrew Tinsley

Emma-Louise McCourbrey

Charmaine Bickerstaff

Blackmountain Action Group

The youth organisation supports our Fixers project and all Fixers involved in this project are part of the group. Youth Development Worker, Donna McCracken also gave an interview for my broadcast item on ITV News.

 

Belfast Boys' Model School

Judith Blair, Head of Counselling at the school, gave an interview for my broadcast item on ITV News.
