The Rt Hon DAVID CAMERON MP: "Stamping
out bullying in the workplace and elsewhere is a vital objective.
Not only can bullying make people's lives a misery, but it harms
business and wider society too. So I congratulate the National
Bullying Helpline for its efforts to give practical support to
those being bullied, and to make bullying a thing of the past".
(NB David Cameron wrote this for us before he became PM. We
are extremely grateful to him for his ongoing support of our work).
'eCRIME is a
21st Century problem of epic proportion without a 21st Century
solution' : Christine Pratt.
WHAT IS eCRIME : All
anti-social behaviour using technology.
What is eCRIME?
At The National Bullying Helpline eCRIME
is our 'label' for all anti-social behaviour using technology.
We include trolling, mobbing, cyber-bullying, cyber-stalking,
child exploitation over the net, cyber fraud, e-theft, identity
fraud and even industrial espionage over the internet. eCRIME
is simply any form of attack or abuse using technology, including
Social Media sites such as Ask.fm, Facebook and Twitter. eCRIME
affects us all, adults and children alike. Any abuse 'on-line'
David Cameron urges
us to boycott 'vile' websites. Let's go a step further. Let's
Lobby for e-CRIME
Legislation or an ACT that partners The Harassment Act. This will
never completely stop internet hate-crime but it may act as a
deterrent and may even save lives.
Do you want to join
forces with us and campaign for tougher laws on all forms of e-CRIME?
Call us today if you want to help. Tel: 0845 22 55 787 now. Thank
you. Christine Pratt. Founder of The National Bullying Helpline.

October 2016: I am a strong
confident women working at a senior level but right now I feel
paralysed with fear due to the bullying. An internal Stage 1 Grievance
has not been upheld and the bullies have won. The internal investigator
just did not 'get it'. You do. When you are dealing with anxiety
due to workplace bullying you need to speak to someone at that
point in time who understand the subject. At The National Bullying
Helpline, you do. Angela.
31 July 2014: So Many
thanks for all your help in resolving the matter. Didn't anticipate
that this would have taken so long or being such a difficult matter
to overcome. I wish you all the best in the future, and hope you
continue to help and support people who have experienced workplace
situations like mine. Thank you so much again. M.
Christine I could not have done
with out your advice and help, the grievance, as you know I have
put in accuses some of the department of bullying and in particular
my manager and this young man who accused me. I cannot express
my thanks enough for your advice at a time when I thought I was
going to take my life. Christine Pratt you are a great advisory,
you know your stuff, may the Lord bless you and keep you and thank
you so very very very much. Lesley. January 2014.
Many thanks for your call today and
for your interest in my situation. Your input, advice and assessment
were all much appreciated as part of my route through the difficult
situation in which I have found myself. I have now made my decision
to accept the settlement agreement offered and have placed the
matter into my Union Rep's hands. It is now time for me to begin
picking up the pieces and to move on. Yvonne. January
Your site has gone a long
way to making me better informed about the enormity and impact
bullying has on a great many people and become better able to
cope with my sense of injustice and anxiety. I believe being better
informed about the reality of your situation helps to understand
why you are in it in the first place and better able to deal with
it in a 'calm' way (well, calmish!). I will do what I can to support
your site so, yes, you can put my sentence on the site but I have
worked very, very hard to develop and maintain a strong relationship
with my union and am at a critical stage at this time so my name
really must not appear. Ms J. September 2013.
Keep up the good fight Christine
you gave me the courage and strength to say no this is wrong to
a very intimidating manager through time i think I'll a better
man for it. Your dear departed friend (Tim Field) would be so
proud of you i think you’re lovely. James. December
Thanks very much for your quick
response and the attachment. And it was good to hear your voice,
feel really warm and being supported. I was really pleased that
found there is such an organisation who can help me, and I have
read quite few cases from your online site and I believe that
things happen for a reason. Ms M. 2013
want to thank you for the support, kindness, respect and understanding
you showed during the investigation I appreciate its long overdue
but it still plays on my mind". Employee following workplace
