Action 4 Bullying Was Born

Action 4 Bullying was the idea of our founder David Turner, who himself experienced bullying as a child and into his teenage years. In 2014 David met John Fisher, Action 4 Bullying’s project manager who took the lead on developing David’s idea in to a sustainable and exciting project. Together they spent several months putting plans in motion and applying for much needed funding. They ran a trial 1 week holiday project in October 2014 with a small pot of funding from the local council.

At the end of 2014 the project was awarded £10,000 from The Big Lottery Fund to develop a youth club to support 11-19 years olds who are affected by bullying. In February 2015 Jack Dromey MP For Erdington launched our twice weekly youth club at Erdington Baptist Church. After recruiting a team of volunteers and securing various other post of funding the youth club continued to run alongside activities during most school holidays.

Registered Charity 

In April 2016 Action 4 Bullying became a registered charity and continued to go from strength to strength and has supported nearly 50 young people to date.

Funding Update And Moving Premises

In June 2016 Action 4 Bullying was approved for a Children In Need grant of just over £60,000 which secured the project for 3 years. In December 2016 Action 4 Bullying moved premises to Malcolm Locker Youth Centre in Erdington and is continuing to run their twice weekly youth club and holiday provision.
