  12. Esther Rantzen CBE President of ChildLine NSPCC ‘Bullying Intervention Group BIG AWARD is a really brilliant scheme because it allows organisations to work towards excellent anti-bullying intervention practices, and to show parents and children that the school or organisation cares about this crucial issue. Bullying is one of the most serious and wide-spread problems children ring ChildLine about. The scheme has already been used in some schools and I know of children and young people who have personally benefited. I recommend the national BIG AWARD to all schools and organisations.’ (c) Bullying Intervention Group

  13. Maggie Turner OBE CEO Diana Award ‘The Diana Award fully supports the work of Bullying Intervention Group BIG AWARD. It is so important that young people play a major role in reducing bullying in their schools and organisations and are trained and supported to achieve this. The staff at BIG have huge expertise and experience in both training, supporting and enabling young people to take on this role and youth participation plays a major role in the criteria of the BIG AWARD. Diana Anti-Bullying Award has worked with the BIG team and look forward to continuing to do so in the future.’ (c) Bullying Intervention Group

  14. Jonathan Charlesworth, Director, Educational Action Challenging Homophobia (EACH) ‘EACH fully supports and endorses the Bullying Intervention Group Accreditation scheme. We are confident that prejudice driven victimisation, especially homophobic bullying, will be markedly reduced by the implementation of this award scheme. Both parents and pupils will be able to choose schools with the added advantage of being able to know whether a school has achieved this recognised standard.’ (c) Bullying Intervention Group

  15. Local Authorities Sarah Callaghan, Lead Officer for Anti Bullying 'Keeping children safe is a key priority for Salford and that is why we have found the support from BIG so invaluable. With BIG's support, many schools are now actively involved in a peer to peer programme enabling them to drive the LA's approach to tackling bullying. BIG have directly delivered training at our Keeping it Safe in Salford Anti Bullying Conference to over 130 delegates and have led workshops to review the LA's Anti Bullying Strategy. The response from all participating schools has been extremely positive, particularly in light of the revised Ofsted inspection framework for schools.'

  16. Schools Paul Roddy, Head of Year 9, Venerable Bede School, Sunderland "An incredible resource in the fight against bullying- every school should use this service. The level of help in improving our school's anti bullying policy was superb and led to a great Ofsted report as well as an award winning anti bullying initiative. Highly recommended."
