OUR SAFETY PARTNERSHIP WITH FACEBOOK
The Diana Award is privileged to be one of Facebook's Safety Partners. Since 2011 The Diana Award has been working in partnership with Facebook to shape the attitudes and behaviours of young people and adults both online and offline. The Diana Award uses its experience with young people, professionals and parents to advise Facebook on how to keep their users safe online and creates tools and resources to educate users about Facebook's Safety Features.
Our Work with Facebook
Sharing good practice from schools at national showcase events hosted at Facebook's offices
Every year we hold events at Facebook's Headquarters in London and Dublin to celebrate and recognise the work of Anti-Bullying Ambassadors from a number of selected Primary and Secondary Schools. The event provides the Ambassadors with a chance to showcase their anti-bullying work in front of a number of schools and some very special guests. We also make an anti-bullying film at all the schools selected which is premiered at the event.
Teaching online safety to our national youth board
Our National Anti-Bullying Ambassador Youth Board represent the voices of Anti-Bullying Ambassadors and young people across the UK. One of the most exciting parts of their role is being invited to Facebook's European Headquarters in Ireland where they spend the day working with the Policy team to learn about Facebook's Safety Features. Once back in school the Youth Board hold assemblies and workshops to relay this information to their peers.
SPONSORSHIP OF our NATIONAL ANTI-BULLYING WEEK EVENTs
We annually celebrate Anti-Bullying Week through two large scale events in the South and North of England. Over 300 young people join us with their staff at each event to share best practice, take part in creative workshops, ask a panel of experts questions and showcase the day's work. At each conference Facebook lead a workshop to educate school staff about how they can keep their students safe online.
ADVISING AND CONSULTING FACEBOOK'S POLICY AND SAFETY TEAM
We often advise Facebook's Policy and Safety team on content for their resources, new safety features they add or reports of bullying. We were privileged to support the development of Facebook's Bullying Prevention Hub which provides resources and tools for dealing with bullying behaviour and its consequences.
Educating schools to use the online world to spread the anti-bullying message
Like Facebook we believe that social media has a huge role to play in raising awareness of bullying and supporting those who have been affected by bullying, either online of offline. We are currently working with Anti-Bullying Ambassadors from two schools who want to take their anti-bullying campaign online by using Facebook Pages. We will share their learning with you shortly!
