Hello, my name is Benjamin, and I am the founder of Sussex Against Bullying.
Sussex Against Bullying started in 2021, to support children & young people aged 8-18 affected by bullying, by providing a Holiday club, Parent support sessions, Mentoring and in-school support to children affected by bullying.
I started SAB out of my own experiences of bullying as I found that there wasn’t that much support, I was also a Beat bullying UK mentor and a Life mentor for their sister site “Mindfull” where I spoke to young people about their own experiences of bullying and supported them through bullying and mental health challenges via the online Beat Bullying platform.
In addition to my Anti-Bullying work, I was also a St John Ambulance Cadet for 13 yrs where I achieved the “Grand Priors Award Scheme” and also volunteered as an adult with SJA aswell. I have worked with young people for a total of 7 yrs now and look forward to supporting young people across Sussex and Portsmouth area.
