For the past 18 months, we have worked with a number of European partners on ENABLE – a EU-funded project which combats bullying and contributes to the well-being of young people through social and emotional development and peer support.
ENABLE (European Network Against Bullying in Learning and Leisure Environments) adopts a holistic view to reducing bullying by involving pupils, staff and parents/ carers. ENABLE’s unique approach is how social and emotional skills of young people works hand in hand with a comprehensive peer support programme to create a shift in culture where students speak out about bullying, support each other and respect each other’s differences. The 10 SEL (social and emotional learning) modules influence students’ behaviour by not only helping them to develop their social and emotional skills but also encouraging them to reflect on their own and on their peers’ behaviour. The Peer Support Programme helps young people run campaigns and activities which educate the whole community including parents/ carers about bullying.
The ENABLE project involves partners in the UK, Belgium, Greece, Denmark and Croatia. The project began with a research phase which informed our approach and the resources we developed.
We, at SWGfL developed the SEL modules while Diana Award, the other UK partner, put together the Peer Support programme.
