Mike Weatherley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, has praised anti-cyber-bullying charity Cybersmile as it is shortlisted for the esteemed 2013 Charity Times Awards, and sponsored a Parliamentary Motion congratulating the charity.
Early Day Motion 604 (Cyber-Bullying) highlights the excellent work of Cybersmile in tackling online-bullying and applauds the charity for its recognition in being shortlisted for a prestigious national charity award.
Cybersmile, 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 cyber-bullying; and offering urgent one-to-one counselling to the victims of cyber-bullying.

Commenting, Mike said: “Cybersmile has done fantastic work right across the country to draw attention to the increasing prevalence of cyber-bullying. Given that cyber-bullying is a problem for both children and adults it is important to raise awareness of the issue and highlight that there is an organisation out there that can help people who are experiencing online bullying. Cybersmile is an excellent candidate for the Best New Charity Award at the 2013 Charity Times Awards and I wish them luck.”
