Our Parents' Voice survey with Respectme, Scotland's anti-bullying service, asked parents about their experiences and understanding of bullying in their children's schools.
Our report on that survey gives voice to many parents, some of whom have shared examples of bullying handled well by schools and others who wrote of their devastation and sense of helplessness when bullying continued and they could not find a way to help their child.
As a result of hearing so many parent voices, we are calling for a dedicated Scottish anti-bullying helpline and for awareness and training to be delivered by specialists to children and young people in schools.
You can read our report here. It is a powerful document and we are very grateful to our parent participants for making their voices heard.
