11:00am Friday 15th March 2013 in News
Anti-bullying mentors are being trained at Bradford College following a grant from the Queen’s Silver Jubilee Trust.
The Trust is paying for BeatBullying to train 2,500 young people as ‘Jubilee mentors’ in 2013. The volunteers, aged 18 to 25, will work together to tackle bullying and offer support to teenagers.
Founder of BeatBullying Emma-Jane Cross (pictured) said: “It is fantastic that young people from Bradford are volunteering to provide support and guidance to other young people, both locally and across the country, in a bid to tackle bullying.
The support from the Queen’s Silver Jubilee Trust underlines how important it is to enable young people to help one another, and takes us closer to our mission to make bullying unacceptable. We look forward to welcoming the new 'Jubilee mentors' from Bradford to our sites."
Nicola Brentnall, director of the Queen’s Silver Jubilee Trust ,said: “Since 1977, the purpose of The Queen’s Silver Jubilee Trust has been to encourage young people to help others.”
