Stand up for me

We’ve probably all seen someone get bullied, yelled at or attacked because of their race, gender, size or a huge range of other reasons. Whatever the reason, bullying is never OK and it’s important to stand up for people who are being mistreated.

Some ideas

  • Bullying is never ok and is not the victim’s fault
  • Offer support to the person being attacked
  • If you can, record or screen grab the attack
  • Report the bullying to appropriate authorities (e.g. school, Netsafe(external link), NZ Police etc)
  • Ask the young person you care about if there's anything else you can do for them
