IceBreaker Anti-Bullying Workshop

Ever wondered what to do when you are being bullied? Do you need support to know you can get through? We have a resource that can help you IceBreaker, a ground breaking new programme, is a project of Yes Disability that delivers a message of resilience and strength to young people facing bullying. Co-developed, co-designed and co-delivered by six young leaders from within the disability sector, this workshop has a powerfully simple message, “You are not alone. You can get through this. We did. Here’s some tools”.

With personal stories of bullying, practical activities and take home resources, IceBreaker aims to help with that ‘cold feeling’ young people describe when they are in the midst of being bullied or find themselves in the role of bully.

IceBreaker presents a 60 minute workshop targeted at young people aged 12-24 years of age in a safe and trusted environment. Our Anti-bullying workshop is delivered by IceBreaker crew members and takes a whole new approach to supporting young people.
