Hundreds of Girl Guides will be trained as Beatbullying ambassadors through a new programme launched by the Chancellor, Gordon Brown. The initiative will provide guides with the confidence, strategies and means to act as anti-bullying advocates in their schools and community and youth groups, to assist in the education of their peers and to support bullied young people and those who are bullies. It is hoped that other countries will introduce the scheme.
