Sinclairslaw CEO message;

“I wanted to do this seminar to raise awareness and to empower individuals with information to help tackle the problem, from basic tried and tested strategies to methods of good practice advocated in schools. The personal account will highlight that a victim of bullying often suffers in silence and may very well present as a person who you may least expect is suffering. If we learn to detect the signs I truly believe that a problem, or worse still tragedy may be avoided. The message is too important to ignore and I invite all those interested to attend the event to book their place.”

Those who cannot make it please log on to Facebook or Twitter for live interactive feed at 5pm on 18th May.

The seminar should not be missed and all schools, parents and children are welcome to attend. Places are limited but free although donations to an anti bullying charity are invited.
