  30. Bullying • What would the signs be? • How would you deal with it? • Who would you tell? • Who might the people involved feel?

  31. What is Bullying? • Behaving in a deliberately intimidating or hurtful way towards someone. • Usually repeated over time, or victims are fearful of repetition. • Bullying can be both physical and emotional. • Power relationships – not about two friends falling out. • It’s about feelings and not actions

  32. What is Bullying • Types of bullying • Signs of bullying

  33. What can you do? • Watch for the signs • Don’t ignore bullying problems • Speak to your section leader, YL leader or GSL • Create an anti-bullying code and code of conduct • Don’t be a bully!

  34. What is abuse? • Physical • Neglect • Emotional • Sexual

  35. Facts about abuse • In most cases children are abused by people they trust • Children with disabilities are at greater risk of abuse • Children and adults are often ‘groomed’ – with threats, treats and other forms of favouritism • Texting or social network sites may be used in grooming • Offenders may make themselves indispensible; so people would never believe any allegations • Child abuse happens in all ethnic, social, religious & economic groups • Abusers come from a wide range of backgrounds; they may be married, well liked & respected • Most child sex abusers are men, but in 20-25% of cases the abuse is by a woman • Young people sometimes abuse other young people

  36. What do I need to do? • Stick to the rules on the Orange Card • Behave appropriately • Observe rules for safety • Recognise the position of trust they’re in • If you suspect abuse: WRITE IT DOWN PASS IT ON

  37. What happens if… • a young person tells you of abuse by someone else? • someone expresses concerns about a young person? • unexplained injuries, or changes in behaviour, are observed which give cause for concern? • you receive an allegation about another person or about yourself? • you are concerned that a colleague isn’t following the Code of Behaviour?

  38. WRITE IT DOWN PASS IT ON

  39. Something to think about… If a young person tells you about abuse you must always pass the information on

  40. Something to think about… Having favourites can do no harm

  41. Something to think about… When working as a young leader, it is OK for you to run a game when an adult leader is not present

  42. Something to think about… Young leaders may share sleeping accommodation with adult leaders when space is limited or alternative arrangements cannot be made

  43. Something to think about… You should not get involved in a relationship with a young person in the section where you are working

  44. Something to think about… Young leaders shouldn’t have physical contact with young people

  45. Something to think about… It is acceptable to “take the mickey” out of a young person

  46. Something to think about… Young people always report incidents of abuse

  47. Something to think about… Young people are likely to exaggerate incidents of abuse

  48. Something to think about… It’s better to wait and see what happens before reporting behaviour or attitudes you do not like

  49. Safe Online • Social networking sites • www.thinkuknow.co.uk • CEOP symbol • Never give away personal details • Never arrange to meet someone without an adult present • You NEVER know who you are talking to

  50. Safe Online • Facebook, BEBO etc • Make sure your profile is appropriate for the people you have as friends • Remember things stay on the internet forever • Think about what your mum, a future employer or a new boy or girlfriend would think of your content • Take action against people who make inappropriate comments, postings etc
