ABC is aware that children in care can be particularly vulnerable to bullying.

Although ABC has a low level of reported incidents of bullying currently this may not necessarily be good news.  We are concerned that we may not be getting a full picture of the extent of bullying our children are experiencing. 

This is one of the reasons we are using the National Anti-bullying week, which runs from 12th November 2018, to raise the profile of this important area of fostering with our carers. 

On 15th November there is a national focus on cyber bullying.  This reflects ABC's concern about the potential risks of the internet for our young people. 

Please join us in supporting our young people and their foster carers to challenge bullying in all its forms.
