Katy Hill, Trutex ambassador said: “As a parent I think today’s initiative is essential in raising awareness around the subject of bullying. The work that The Diana Award is doing is groundbreaking in terms of raising this issue with both pupils and teachers. I can’t think of another programme that empowers in such a positive way and addresses this problem that affects nearly one in three children in the UK.”
Matthew Easter, managing director Trutex said: “We’ve been making school uniforms for over 150 years and are very aware of the negative impact bullying can have. It is for this reason that we have decided to partner with The Diana Award and their significant commitment to helping students through training, mentoring and support programmes. Our newly launched anti-bullying initibTRU2u will help further support anti-bullying in our schools and communities.”
Tessy Ojo, CEO of The Diana Award said: “We are absolutely delighted to be partnering with Trutex on this initiative. We know the positive and life-changing impact our anti-bullying programme has – it’s about giving young people the skills to regulate their own behaviour as well as giving them the responsibility for the wellbeing of their peers. This is a particularly special year for the Diana Award as, twenty years on, we celebrate her qualities of kindness, compassion and service. The young people being trained today will be putting these qualities into practical action.”
