Buddy Bear was created by a group of five teenagers - Aimee, Brogyn, Emily, Erin and Rory in partnership with Lead A Bright Future - The idea to tackle bullying started with a conversation about personal experiences, which led to an understanding of how widespread bullying is. Anyone whose life has been touched by bullying knows how horrible and isolating it can be. Fuelled with a passion to help prevent it from happening to any other children, for their project the teens were helped to write a children's picture storybook and the idea grew from there. It now includes an amazing backpack of fun and educational resources for younger children, which is supported by the SQA Giving Something Back initiative, and is continuously evolving and being updated. The project kicked -off with a dress-up day at Elphinstone Primary School to raise funds for the Buddy Bear Backpack initiative, and we are now in talks to take it to Law Primary for anti-bullying week.
