Together we can stop bullying and create safe environments in which children and young people can live, grow, play and learn.
The bullying in any form is wrong and should not be tolerated, and any environment that encourages bullying or shows indifference to prejudice and discrimination is unacceptable. All children and young people have intrinsic value and we embrace their uniqueness and autonomy.
We respect difference and welcome diversity in society and in particular in our children and young people.
The children and young people should have the right to feel safe, secure and valued, and creating a safe environment and dealing with bullying is everyone's responsibility.
We believe children and young people should actively participate in decisions that affect them and should be supported in taking responsibility for their choices and subsequent actions.
We support a range of positive strategies to deal with bullying and actively challenge the use of humiliation, fear, ridicule and other similar approaches in an effort to reduce bullying.
To raise the profile of bullying and the effect it has on the lives of children and young people and we want to create a climate in which everyone agrees that bullying is unacceptable.
We support the teachers, parents, children and young people have the skills and knowledge to address bullying effectively.
We are working to achieve our objectives:
a) partnership building, policy development and media work
b) building the evidence base for effective practice, encouraging research and evaluation to identify the activities to do
c) collecting and sharing effective practices
d) supporting new developments and innovations in line with the evidence
e) disseminating and sharing information through our membership and developing resources for schools and other organisations that work with children and young people.
We would like to improve any anti-bullying policy and practice or provide advice and expertise in relation to all forms of bullying between children and young people. We have experience in working with a vast range of clients including the government, youth charities, media, public services, schools and universities, children's homes, young offender institutes and companies.

"We do not so much need the help of our friends as the confidence of their help in need" Epicuro quote
One day someone asked me what People Help the People was and I spontaneously replied it was just a think tank to help people in need.
Although being pretty young PHP is living an important moment. It has managed, in a short time, to build, brick on brick, a set of synergies across Europe that allowed it to try new methods and collaboration processes.
The formative and exciting Consilium project experience, that gave birth to wonderful friendships, let us realize that the spirit, which had inspired our Association, was the right one.
Sharing the Mediter network, with the Mediterranean basin countries, let us understand that it is that southern part of the world we have to pay attention to.
The international project Futeur is letting us grasp the importance of the exchange of professional and human experiences, essential for a real European dimension.
Therefore, a new communication approach, a new graphic and social networks activities have become indispensable.
And once again, we are astonished by the number of requests for contact we have received, that really gratifies us and that encourages us to keep going on with this challenging path that, in collaboration with local associations and authorities, with European and the Mediterranean partners, will allow us to start a socially involving and humanly rewarding process.
