Anti-Bullying Week – NSPCC video on YouTube Channel

NSPCC videos on YouTube ChannelOn Wednesday the NSPCC posted the first of its new weekly self-help videos on the ChildLine YouTube channel. YouTube is the most popular website and social network for children and young people according to the latest report from ChildWise, and the second most popular search engine after Google. It’s more important than ever for ChildLine to have a strong presence on YouTube as it’s the online platform that young people are increasingly turning to for information, advice and entertainment.

Videos over the coming months will cover a whole host of issues affecting children and young people including emotional issues over Christmas and New Year, mental health and sexuality, and feature well-known YouTube vloggers and personalities.

As part of Anti-bullying Week, the first video features Les Mis star Carrie Hope-Fletcher (below) discussing how to deal with the effects of bullying, hosted by our very own Teoh from the Communications team.

The NSPCC also had a partnership with Cartoon Network this week featuring Olympic diver Tom Daley, who appeared on the One Show to promote the campaign, and a blog by our education consultant Kay Joel on the Times Educational Supplement website, giving teachers advice on how to deal with bullying.
