The Northern Ireland Anti-Bullying Forum are currently recruiting for young people to join their Young Person Advisory Group (YPAG).

The purpose of YPAG is to help advise and support the work of the Northern Ireland Anti-Bullying Forum (NIABF) which works to end the bullying of children and young people in our schools and in our communities. NIABF is hosted by the National Childrens Bureau (NCB).

For more information about NIABF: http://www.endbullying.org.uk/about-us/ 

Members of YPAG will be children and young people aged 8-18 years, who will meet regularly via the online platform Zoom. There are many exciting opportunities ahead for young people to engage in and play an important role in working to end bullying.

Some upcoming opportunities:

  • Join the Anti-Bullying Week ‘21 Young Advisors Team (8-18 years) – Share your thoughts on themes and activities of ABW21 and help to plan our week of activities.
  • Help to plan the ABW21 Creative Arts Competition (8-18 years) – Help to plan our Creative Arts Competition and Celebration Event
  • Join our Hearing the Voices of Young People project (13-18 years) – Help design and produce our ABW20 Poll Findings, plan meetings and events, develop skills to raise the awareness of bullying as an issue, be part of the solution-focused discussions and engage with politicians and decision makers who have the power to make positive change.

No experience is necessary and YPAG members will be fully supported to take part by NIABF and NCB staff team. More information will be provided including Zoom dates and consent forms after registration.

If you’d like to join the NIABF YPAG please complete an ‘Expression of Interest’ form stating which (or all) of the projects you’d like to take part in and return to Aoife Nic Colaim; [email protected]
