ZAP is a FREE one-day workshop for children and young people aged 9-16 who have experienced bullying, funded by the Big Lottery Fund. It is a fun, interactive day that encourages the development of assertiveness skills and raises young people's confidence so that they are able to deal with bullying situations effectively.
Parents and carers can request an application form at www.kidscape.org.uk/zap. They also attend a separate workshop on the day where they are given expert knowledge of how to effectively support their child.
The format of ZAP workshops for both young people and parents is informal and approached in a way that encourages involvement. Skills are learnt through interactive activities and the ethos of the workshop is based on acceptance and friendship, which enables even the most nervous and withdrawn child to feel comfortable in participating.
