Welcome to FUSE
A very warm welcome to FUSE Anti-Bullying and Online Safety Programme developed by DCU Anti-Bullying Centre – a national university designated research centre located in DCU’s Institute of Education.
The Centre has a global reputation for its research excellence in bullying and online safety.
The FUSE Anti-Bullying and Online Safety Programme is supported by the Department of Education and is referenced in Cineáltas: Action Plan on Bullying which acknowledges the importance of evidence-based, age-appropriate and culturally relevant anti-bullying programmes such as FUSE.
FUSE is the first research-based Anti-Bullying and Online Safety Programme designed to comply with UNESCO’s Whole Education Approach to tackle bullying and online safety issues in schools. It is based on 25 years of research on bullying prevention and intervention and is designed to support the wider SPHE/RSE/Wellbeing curricula in schools. FUSE consists of a suite of student-led workshops and resources delivered by teachers in classroom settings.
At the heart of FUSE is the aim of building capacity in schools to tackle bullying and online safety issues and to empower children and adolescents to understand their own behaviour, be able to recognise bullying and online safety risks and be confident in how to report and seek support when they need it.
FUSE is delivering tangible results and positive impact within school communities in tackling bullying & promoting online safety.
