Preventing the Effects of Bullying

Providing support at the earliest stages to prevent the effects bullying has on young people and the community

how we can help

Spiral works with young people aged 8-25 and guardians of young people facing issues related to bullying.

There are currently 2 projects running across Cumbria; staff work with an approach that provides support at the earliest stages to prevent the effects that bullying has on young people and the community. The young people, staff, and volunteers are working with young people in the early stages and who may have increased anger, low mood, and anxious thoughts. These are all factors that can lead to bullying behaviour and becoming a target of bullying.

The approach adapted by staff and trained volunteers at Spiral is to provide psychoeducation to young people enabling them to gain knowledge on their and their peer's developing brain and learn how to manage difficult and overwhelming emotions.
