We partner with schools, pre-schools and sports clubs to which we provide training. We work together to promote long-term, systematic efforts to bring about change, where Friends provides staff and management with the expertise and tools to create a safe environment for children and young people.
In conjunction with universities in Sweden and abroad, we conduct research projects that develop and supplement our knowledge of how to best stop bullying and discrimination.
The expertise and experience we obtain from our own training and research partnerships, we disseminate to other foundations, organisations, authorities and other stakeholders who work to prevent bullying around the world.
Together with other non-profit organisations, we initiate projects that focus on specific issues related to bullying, such as sexual harassment, neurodevelopmental disorders and unaccompanied minors applying for asylum.
Municipal and business partnerships
Friends’ exchanges and partnerships with municipalities, principals and businesses are important as a means of involving all parts of society in the efforts to stop bullying. Their financial support is also crucial in order to enable us to offer subsidised training to more schools, pre-schools and sports clubs.
