Refreshed anti-bullying guidance has been launched for everyone who works with children and young people.

The purpose of 'Respect for All: The National Approach to Anti-Bullying for Scotland's Children and Young People' is to ensure that all sectors and communities are consistently and coherently contributing to a holistic approach to anti-bullying regardless of the type of bullying.

The refreshed guidance is to support all adults working with children and young people to develop environments where bullying cannot thrive. Environments that promote respect, celebrate difference and promote positive relationships and behaviour are less likely to see bullying as acceptable behaviour.
