Thank you to our magnificent supporters who have been donating generously to the Newport County AFC Crowdfunder, which through your votes, will see one of three incredible charities have the opportunity to become our front of shirt sponsor for next season.
Today, we are delighted to introduce anti bullying charity – Kidscape.
We are all aware of how damaging bullying can be and the potential long-term impact it can have on a persons’ life. We know on average 1 in 4 children have experienced bullying and as many as 16,000 children were absent from school in 2019 alone due to bullying.
During Covid-19, many children will have experienced isolation and loneliness, while other children will have sought some relief from being away from the physical impact of a bullying situation, however, all children will now be presented with the daunting challenge of returning to school, and potentially the transition to high school.
Kidscape have continued to offer their help and support during the pandemic by providing informative online workshops for children and their families.
Kidscape’s vision is for all children to grow up in a world free from bullying and harm, with adults who keep them safe and help them to reach their full potential. Their mission is to provide children, families, carers and professionals with advice, training and practical tools to prevent bullying and protect young lives.
The Charity focuses on 5 methods to reduce the impact of bullying and harm:
· Building communities of support
· Reducing isolation and loneliness
· Promoting positive relationships
· Supporting resilience and wellbeing
· Helping children recognise and respond to bullying behaviour
Kidscape give hope and help to thousands of children and families each year and work with communities to not only help keep children safe, but to enable them to thrive throughout their lives. For more information on Kidscape please https://www.kidscape.org.uk/
