Mike Weatherley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, and Patron of The Cybersmile Foundation, has backed an Early Day Motion (EDM) that highlights the work which has been carried out by Cybersmile in tackling cyberbullying.
EDM 158 (National Stop Cyberbullying Day) draws attention to the rising problem of cyberbullying and the work of Cybersmile in addressing this new form of bullying. The charity, founded by Brighton & Hove resident Scott Freeman, is committed to helping educate people to use social media safely; providing valuable information and guidance for all areas of cyberbullying; and offering urgent one-to-one counselling to the victims of cyberbullying.

Commenting, Mike said: “It is really encouraging that more and more Members of Parliament are aware of the excellent work carried out by Cybersmile. As a patron of the charity, I was of course delighted to support this important parliamentary motion, which I hope will help boost awareness of this pernicious bullying even further.”
