Nominations for Cardiff’s anti-bullying awards enter final week


Nominations for this year’s Inspire Awards have entered the final week, with the deadline set for this coming Friday, December 2nd.

Launched in November to coincide with Anti-Bullying Week, Inspire Awards 2016 is designed to celebrate the children, young people and adults who have the courage and the strength of character to stand up for or support someone they know that’s being bullied.

These acts of kindness often go unrecognised, but they can make all the difference to the lives of the people they help. Inspire Awards 2016 is an opportunity to say thank you to those who contribute positively in some way to the happiness, acceptance and security of others within the city’s schools and communities.

Cabinet Member for Education, Cllr Sarah Merry said: “It’s really important that we recognise the great work being done to help tackle bullying by creating a positive, supportive and caring environment.

“Inspire Awards 2016 is a fantastic way to say thank you to the people making a difference to the lives of a friend, pupil or colleague.

“I am really looking forward to congratulating these truly inspiring people and to celebrate the incredible support they offer to those they know when needed the most.”

Nominations can be made in one of five categories:

  1. School award – Primary

  2. School award – Secondary

  3. Non-Teaching/Teaching Staff Individual award

  4. Young Person Individual award

  5. Community Individual or Group award

Online nominations can be made at www.cardiff.gov.uk/inspire

Inspire Awards 2016 is organised by Cardiff Against Bullying, the city of Cardiff Council’s anti-bullying team. The team works in partnership with schools, charities, South Wales Police, parents, carers and children and young people to support those experiencing bullying or bullying others.

Bullying can have a devastating effect on the lives of children and their families. Cardiff Against Bullying aims to reduce incidents and create a supportive environment where children and young people feel safe.
