Kidscape believes that all children should be able to grow up in a world free from bullying and abuse.
Kidscape believes in encouraging knowledge that helps children protect themselves. Children are taught to be self reliant, observant, with the ability to make mature judgements. Our ZAP workshops teach them practical skills to deal with future situations of bullying, which is successful in 80% of the cases.
On ZAP days, first thing in the morning, you’ll see a parade of children coming to a small office in central London. They come from all over the UK; many are stoop-shouldered, clinging to a parent’s hand, eyes down.
Many of the children who attend these one day courses are suicidal and self-harming. For severely bullied children, the hope, and the change, starts here at Kidscape.
It is heart breaking to turn children away. We are constantly striving to find ways and means to run more ZAP courses, around the country, so more children who have been the victims of bullies can begin to turn their lives around.
