The Prevent Bullying and Abuse
is an Erasmus+ KA2 project, in partnership of 7 organisations from 6 countries. (Four out of seven partners are also members of E2C-Europe.) The project partners are: -
NFSZK (National Institute of Social Policy) – leading partner, Budapest, Hungary -
Youth School – Copenhagen, Denmark -
E2C73 – Chambery, France -
OFOE (National Association of Form-masters) – Budapest, Hungary -

The project started in September 2018 and the final product will be ready by May 2021. The aim of the project is to develop a toolkit which contributes to: -
inform young adults about different bullying situations; -
help them recognise these situations; -
equip them with tools to avoid these situations; -
draw their attention to particularly vulnerable groups; -
equip the teachers/youth workers who work with them with a tool to prevent bullying and abuse.
The toolkit is based on presenting young people belonging to diverse vulnerable groups and the different abusing situations that affect these characters. The different vulnerable characters and the abusing situations illustrate the situations in the partner countries. The toolkit can be applied in different ways. It is suitable for colliding debates and opinions among young people. In this case, it rather mobilizes the intellectual abilities of the participants. However, these characters and situations can be displayed dramatically, which method rather mobilize the emotions of the participants.
The vulnerabilities of different characters may be due to some form of their disability (physical, mental, visual, or auditory); their sexual orientation; their existence as a migrant, national minority or Roma youngster; their poverty; their parental neglect or over care; ‘only’ their second chance school status; or an existing violent partner relationship etc. They all experience verbal, emotional, physical, financial, sexual and cyber violence as well.
The toolkit will be available from June 2021 in the languages of the six participating countries and also in English.
