Call for Proposals: Children as Victims of Bullying Projects
05 March 2015
This call for proposals for action grants is based on the 2014 annual work programme of the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme (REC Programme) . It aims to co-fund transnational projects linked to children as victims of bullying at school, in residential care settings and in detention, in line with the specific objective to prevent and combat all forms of violence against children, young people and women, as well as violence against other groups at risk, in particular groups at risk of violence in close relationships, and to protect victims of such violence (Daphne).
The priority of the call is to combat bullying against children at school, in residential care settings and in detention.
Pooling resources, experience and identified best practices towards developing and implementing anti-bullying programmes will allow for a better understanding of the different national contexts, provide a mutually beneficial learning experience and bring into contact organisations from across the EU in order to tackle a problem that through the use of social media and the internet is very international. Applications must be aligned with the UN Convention on the rights of the child and take account of standards to prevent and combat bullying as well as standards in alternative care and detention .
While bullying certainly occurs in other settings also, please note that this call is limited in scope to the settings mentioned above, namely school, residential care settings and detention.
This call will fund activities on:
mutual learning, exchange of good practices, cooperation activities;
In particular, projects should develop and roll out, or roll out previously developed and piloted comprehensive anti-bullying policy and programmes (to be described in detail in the application) in one of the three settings mentioned in this call. All projects should not only develop a sound methodology using recognised existing good practice or tried and tested intervention models, but also consist of a large proportion of concrete and practical delivery to the specific target groups identified, ultimately to improve children's experience of school, alternative care or detention as a respectful and non-violent environment.
Projects may cover social networking sites/cyberbullying as an extension of bullying in schools, residential care and detention. Projects under this priority may allow for adaptations or customisation in line with the situation in individual Member States, but the overall objectives and methods must be the same for all participating Member States.
