respectme, Scotland's Anti-Bullying Service was launched in March 2007. We are funded by the Scottish Government and managed in partnership with SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health), and LGBT Youth Scotland.
respectme works with all adults who have a role to play in the lives of children and young people to give them the practical skills and confidence to deal with bullying behaviour, wherever it occurs. We offer free training at events across Scotland and work with organisations at a local and strategic level to develop and review anti-bullying policies and practices.
respectme also campaigns at a national level to raise awareness of bullying behaviour and its impact on children and young people.
The work is driven by a focus on children's rights: it's the right of every child and young person not to be bullied, and we want bullying to be seen as a rights issue, not as a normal part of growing up.
respectme is not a helpline - it provides practical advice and guidance on developing and reviewing anti-bullying policies and initiatives and identifying the best ways of putting them into practice - but it can put you in touch with other organisations who have trained counsellors you can discuss any worries with.
