Shops to help stop children being bullied

Shops and businesses in Denbighshire, Wales, are being asked to act as ‘safe-havens’ to children being bullied on their journeys to and from school, BBC Wales reports.

Workers in the area will be given training on how to offer support to children who come into their shops looking for help. It is part of the I-Spy campaign, which aims to bring schools, community groups and police together to tackle bullying. Phil Pierce, head teacher of Prestatyn High School, told the BBC he hopes the scheme will launch next month.
