  • Encourage parents and carers to work with their school and talk to their children about bullying, difference and equality.

  • Enable teachers and other children’s workforce professionals to celebrate what makes us ‘all different, all equal’ and celebrate difference and equality. Encouraging them to take individual and collective action to prevent bullying, creating safe environments where children can be themselves.
