What is a community?

A community is a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common.

Benefits of a being part of a community:

  • People feel more secure when they know that they have others around them who share their goals and care about their progress. This is one reason why it can be stressful to move or to travel. A community provides a sense of belonging which has been proven to help people live a healthier and happier life.
  • You get to know people – The people who live next door, who run the local corner shop, who you attend extra-curricular activities with.
  • Having a positive effect on your community – helping the old lady down the road to get her weekly food shop or raising money for your local community charities.
  • Economic Benefits – When we require tradesman or raw materials we shop for the best product at the best price. Quite often friends, next door or friends of friends will know a local tradesman or retailer who may be able to help. Many often giving local discounts and thus generating local capital for the community. 

In the past, especially in times of turmoil such as the global economic crisis the local community would help each other through.


Bullying can happen to anyone at any age. Being bullied at school, home or online might involve someone pushing you, hitting you, teasing you, talking about you or calling you names. Nobody has the right to hurt you or make you feel bad. If you are being bullied you don’t have to deal with it alone – you can talk to someone about it can often really help.

Bullying can mean many different things and young people have described bullying as:

  • being called names
  • being put down or humiliated
  • being teased
  • being pushed or pulled about
  • having money and other possessions taken or messed about with
  • having rumours spread about you
  • being ignored and left out
  • being hit, kicked or physically hurt
  • being threatened or intimidated

These things can happen at school or at home, but they can also happen online or on social networks.

Bullying can also be part of other forms of abuse, including neglectemotionalphysicaland sexual abuse.
