ZAP anti-bullying workshop for 9-16 Year olds and their Parents/Carers

ZAP is a FREE one-day workshop for children and young people and their parents/carers who have experienced bullying.  It is a fun, interactive day that encourages the development of assertiveness skills and raises young people's confidence so that they are able to deal with bullying situations effectively. We offer sessions for 9-11 and 12-16 year olds. The workshops run from 10am - 3.30pm. 

Parents and carers can request an application form at, They also attend a separate session on the day where they are given expert knowledge of how to effectively support their child.

The format of ZAP workshops for both young people and parents is informal and approached in a way that encourages involvement. Skills are learnt through interactive activities and the ethos of the workshop is based on acceptance and friendship, which enables even the most nervous and withdrawn child to feel comfortable in participating.

Zayam’s* mum: ‘He has become so much more assertive now; he's a lot more confident. He's starting to believe in teachers and adults. He doesn't feel like he's the only one, that there's something wrong with him because he met other children there who were like him, just normal boys...’ (more here:
