Telling about bullying A leaflet for Deaf adults

Illustration of a Deaf woman looking out of a window at her daughter being bulliedIt can be really upsetting to discover that a child is being bullied. Our Telling about bullying leaflet can be shared with deaf adults who find pictures easier to read than words. The leaflet contains advice to help them find out what they can do when a child is being bullied.

In partnership with Books Beyond Words we tell a story in pictures about how Mum and Dad are worried about their daughter being bullied at school. It shows how they contact the NSPCC and get the advice and help they need to support their child.

The leaflet is also a valuable resource for services and professionals working with deaf adults.
