Cheshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner is bringing together a team of community representatives to look into the issue of bullying which he describes as “an epidemic among all generations in our society”.

As part of this review, David Keane has opened a call-for-evidence to give victims of bullying and those with experiences of bullying the opportunity to tell their story.

If you’d like to tell us about your experiences of bullying, please fill out this short survey.

The Commissioner and his team will also be holding community engagement sessions across Cheshire to capture people’s experiences both on and off camera. Some of the footage captured will be used in a documentary centred on giving a realistic portrayal of the effects of bullying on our communities.

The Call for Evidence will travel to locations across the county between August and November 2019. Scheduled events are listed below, please keep checking the website for the latest events.
