Australia has a problem with Bullying and Angels Hope Australia is asking for your help to fix it by joining the Angels Hope Business Supporter Programme.
In the 2014 Government report on Bullying in Australian Schools, it was found that each year;
- 1 in 4 students are bullied in school,
- Onlookers are present in almost 90% of instances of bullying,
- 1 in 5 children aged 8 to 15, have experienced cyber bullying,
- and Almost every day of the year one person under the age of 25 commits suicide. Almost half of these have bullying as a contributing factor.
In the past five years Bullying in our schools and Cyber Bullying of young people has dramatically increased. As a result, rates of youth mental health issues and suicide from bullying are also increasing.
The purpose of Angels Hope is to mentor, educate and inspire all children and young adults with the necessary life-long skills and courage them to take action against becoming the victim of bullying in their schools, sporting clubs, workplaces and the broader community and to prevent youth suicide caused by bullying.
Angels Hope, is creating awareness and education on bullying and is working with schools and parents to reduce Bullying against young people in school and online. We provide a forum for families and bullying victims to talk and tell their stories and by doing so empower others that are in the same situation to get help.
Bullying can have a devastating effect on young people.
