About Sussex Against Bullying

Sussex Against Bullying was started in June 2017 by its current founder, Benjamin Checkley, with the aim of setting up a youth club and holiday run project, for young people aged between 11-18, who have been affected by bullying.

Benjamin has many years experience working within the voluntary sector; He was a Peer-mentor working on the charity, BeatBullying, where he worked to support young people with the support of professional counselors and their own trained moderators.

Benjamin was also a St John Cadet for around 13 yrs, where he learned essential live saving skills while also working alongside nurses, paramedics, and doctors.
