Become a Media Ambassador and Share Your Story

If you’ve got a story to tell and want to inspire others, we’d love to hear from you.

At BulliesOut, we believe that it is important to talk openly about the issues of bullying and how it affects people and sharing stories is one way of doing this. Our Media Ambassadors work with us  to share their experiences to the media outlets that contact us. If you’ve been affected by bullying and want to use your experience to raise awareness in a positive way, we’d love to hear from you.

Part of our work is to raise awareness to the public and we regularly work with TV, radio and news outlets to share the stories and experiences of our Media Ambassadors.

We are looking for people aged 12+ who have been affected by bullying in some way and are comfortable talking about it. This can be bullying at school, online, at work or historical bullying.

 

Things to consider before applying

We want to make sure that this is the right thing for you to do, so before applying – please ask yourself the following questions.

  • Are you ready to put yourself and your story out there? Once it’s out there, you won’t be able to take it back.
  • Know that we’ll be with you for your entire journey and that it’s okay to say stop at any time. You are in complete control and will never be put under any pressure.
  • If your situation is ongoing, you may be contacted by our support team who will offer you help and support before your story is considered.
  • We are incredibly selective about the media with who we work, however, you can never control how a journalist will present your story. Be reassured that we have never had a bad experience.
  • If you’re below the age of 18, you will need consent from your parent/guardian.
  • If you would rather remain anonymous when telling your story, you will have the option to do so.

 

I’d like to apply, what’s next?

That’s great to hear! Always remember that you can pull out at any time.  We will only contact you if a suitable opportunity arises and you are able to turn down opportunities if you do not feel they are right for you.  You will never be pressured into doing something you’re not completely comfortable with. Please be aware that media opportunities are not constant so your story may be in our media library for a while before a suitable opportunity arises. If this happens then we will hold it on file in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

To apply, simply complete the form on this page – giving as much information as possible. Once your story has been submitted, our team will review and assess it. If your story is a fit, a member of the BulliesOut team will contact you directly to confirm that you are happy to participate and will have a chat to you to make sure you’re completely comfortable with taking part.

Examples of potential media involvement include blogs on our website, television interviews, newspaper interviews and radio interviews. If you would prefer to be anonymous, that is completely fine, just please specify on the below form.

 

Apply now

Once you have submitted your application, we’ll be in touch to let you know if it’s something we’d like to take forward.

If it is, we will then send over media opportunities on an ad-hoc basis. This means it may take a week to get your first opportunity, or 6 months.

Need to talk?

If you are being bullied or are concerned about someone who is, you can receive help and support from one of our trained Mentors through our e-mentoring service.

If you would like a Mentor to email you, please contact: mentorsonline@bulliesout.com

If you would rather speak to someone over the telephone, you can call Childline on: 0800 1111

For any community-related issues, such as anti-social behaviour, we would suggest contacting your landlord, the local police or your local environmental health department (where applicable), as we are unable to deal with these types of complaints.
