Anti-bullying hotline and website for children and teens coming soon to Monaco

Following nearly 40 reports of harassment and violence during the last school year, the Principality is reportedly stepping up its fight against school bullying with the imminent launch of a new support hotline and website for victims. 

Aimed at providing immediate support to students suffering at the hands of bullies, as well as offering a safe place for victims and witnesses to come forwards with reports of bullying incidents, the dual helpline and website project marks the next stage in an ongoing strategy to crackdown on bullying in the Principality’s schools.

In comments published by the Monaco Matin, Minister of the Interior Patrice Cellario said, “The idea is that we have a single telephone number that is connected to the Department of Education… Outside of the working hours of the department – at night and on weekends – the number will be sent to a partnered association so that the support can be continuous.” 

The hotline will reportedly be supplemented by a website that will provide helpful resources and advice to victims of bullying.  

A date for the launch of the hotline and website is yet to be confirmed, but Cellario indicated in his comments that it could coincide with the return to school in a few weeks’ time “or in any case later this month”.
