bullying taking place
Bullying can be targeted at a person for many different reasons.

Being bullied is never your fault

A bully might make you feel as though there is something wrong with you, but this is not the case. You have a right to be you.

Types of bullying

Homophobic

Homophobic bullying happens when bullies treat others badly because of how they view their sexual orientation.

Racist​

Racist bullying happens when somebody is targeted because of their skin colour, culture, religious background or where they come from. Racist bullying can involve personal attacks, racist graffiti and / or racist jokes and name-calling. ​

Disablist​

Disablist bullying is targeted at a person who has a disability. If you have a physical, learning or other disability, your school and teachers can support you.

Religious

Religious bullying is bullying targeted at a person because of their faith or religion. This could involve making fun of a person or disrespecting them.

Nobody has the right to bully others​

If you are being bullied, if you see bullying at your school or club, or if you have been involved in bullying and would like to change, you can get support.
