Young people with talent often face bullying: research from the Anti-Bullying Alliance in 2012 showed that 90% of children had been bullied or seen someone being bullied for having a natural talent. Half of the children surveyed had downplayed their talent because of bullying, while one in 10 had stopped singing because of bullying.

We’re delighted to be working with TeenStar and Open Mic UK.
