YMCA 'Be Real' Campaign

Alan Campbell MP has raised concerns following a report by YMCA which looked into the effects of appearance-based bullying on young people.

YMCA’s ‘Be Real’ Report found that more than half of young people have been bullied about their appearance and for most this bullying starts by the age of 10 years old.

Tynemouth MP Alan Campbell said “I was shocked at the findings of this report.  It is unacceptable that children as young as ten are being bullied because of their appearance and it’s clear that more needs to be done to address this issue such as education around bullying, body image and sexual harassment within schools.”
