Dons support local anti-bullying campaign

16 November 2016

MK Dons have showed their support for Milton Keynes Youth Cabinet’s anti-bullying campaign.

Players and staff are pictured above with the members of the Milton Keynes YCAB, who are proudly presented one of their striking anti-bullying posters which have been launched as part of their latest campaign.

The posters focus on key bullying issues affecting young people today: race and religion, lesbian, gay and bi-sexual (LGBT) and disability.

YCAB, which is made up of more than 30 young people aged 11-19, made the commitment to the campaign in their manifesto after almost 4,000 young voters from across MK voted for this to be a priority during the election process last year.

Mahi Joshi, Member of YCAB, said: “This has been a great campaign to work on.  Bullying affects so many young people. We hope our work will help spread the message that we are all equal and bullying of any kind needs to stop.”

Cllr Zoe Nolan, Cabinet Member for Children and Families will attend the launch of the posters and said: “This is a great piece of work by the Youth Cabinet. They have taken an idea and brought it to life in a very creative way. I hope their work will show other young people that they can speak up about bullying and that together we can all act to stop it happening."

The posters were launched at The Big Debate, where students from Milton Keynes secondary schools gathered to debate issues with key community figures, including the local MPS, Mark Lancaster and Iain Stewart.

The posters will be displayed in all secondary schools in Milton Keynes, as well as other key venues across the city.
