Buddy Bear Friends is the leading campaign of award winning social enterprise Lead a Bright Future. This visionary programme stemmed from one of our Lead a Bright Future projects with young people that wanted to address bullying.
This holistic programme supports young children to embrace their inner superhero. To nurture friendships, well-being and learning powers.
The Programme began with a children's superhero storybook created by a group of inspiring teenagers together with Lead A Bright Future. It is now a whole school community approach, with a holistic programme of fun and educational workshops and resources.
Children's superhero Buddy Bear and the team visit nurseries and primary schools for children in their formative years (aged 4-7 years), for an action packed mission, to promote being kind, loving yourself and being a good friend.
It has gained the support of the Scottish Qualifications Authority Giving Something Back initiative. As well as preventing bullying, it nurtures children's well-being, attainment and achievement in line with CfE and GIRFEC.
The whole school community is being inspired by Buddy Bear Friends, with hundreds of acts of kindness.
