All young people have a right to be safe and a right to tell if they are being bullied in school or online.

However, it’s not just the direct victims of cyberbullying who can talk to Childline.

If a young person is worried about a friend who is being bullied, or if he or she has witnessed cyber bullying, Childline is there to listen to all and any situations.

If a young person is not ready to tell a parent or a teacher about the bullying he/she is experiencing, Childline is available, in confidence, to help that young person.

It really is true that a problem shared, is a problem halved.
