Prevention and response to identity-based bullying among local authorities in England, Scotland and Wales, 02/03/11 [E/S/W]

The Equality and Human Rights Commission has published a report which looks at the extent and effectiveness of local authorities' and schools' actions to prevent and respond to prejudice-based bullying of young people both inside and outside of school, on the grounds of disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion or belief or sexual orientation.

It found that bullying based on students' identities remains a widespread problem and is limiting the achievements of those who are bullied. Efforts to tackle the problem vary between local authorities and for different types of prejudice-related bullying.

For full details see Prevention and response to identity-based bullying among local authorities in England, Scotland and Wales which is available from the Equality and Human Rights Commission website.
