Host signs up to BulliesOut ‘SPEAK OUT’ Campaign
Bullying is a huge societal issue that occurs well beyond the school years. It causes unimaginable distress to a person, including anxiety, stress and depression. Bullying affects their social and academic ability and has a major impact on their mental health.
With mental health becoming a greater issue in universities, Host has committed to BulliesOut ‘SPEAK OUT’ campaign.
‘SPEAK OUT’ is a BulliesOut campaign developed to motivate a call to action against bullying through public awareness. Created from an idea inspired by BulliesOut team of Youth Ambassadors, the Campaign aims to raise awareness of bullying and how it affects a person by engaging with businesses.
By joining the ‘SPEAK OUT’ Campaign Host commits to working with BulliesOut to promote an anti-bullying and respectful ethos as this is a powerful way to Inspire Change and Make a Difference.
- We commit to working together to create a safe and healthy environment
- Everyone is expected to respect the right of each individual
- Everyone will be treated equally and respected for their individuality and diversity
- Bullying in any form is unacceptable and will not be tolerated
- Our policies and procedures will underpin the principles of this Campaign and will be upheld by all
