As part of The Royal Foundation’s Taskforce on the Prevention of Cyberbullying, a panel of young people have developed a campaign to encourage other young people to take three steps when you see bullying online.
Stop, Speak, Support
Stop, Speak, Support aims to help young people spot cyberbullying and know what steps they can take to stop it happening and provide support to the person being bullied.
The taskforce’s campaign encourages young people who encounter cyberbullying to:
- Stop – Take time out before getting involved, and don’t share or like negative comments.
- Speak – Ask an adult or friend that you can trust for advice
- Support - Give the person being bullied a supportive message to let them know they’re not alone.
The Royal Taskforce
The Royal Foundation Taskforce on the Prevention of Cyberbullying was established by The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. The taskforce works with the technology industry to develop a series of commitments to help prevent the cyberbullying of children and young people, together with the guidance and expertise of charities, not-for-profit organisations and independent advisors.
The Taskforce launched in May 2016 to develop an industry-wide response to the online bullying of young people.
