TRAINING in combatting online bullying will be offered to adults next week.
Three sessions are being run in Elgin by Respect, Scotland’s anti-bullying service.
The training is designed to increase awareness of the challenges young people face online.
A national bullying survey in 2014 found that less than half of children and young people who were bullied told their parents.
In addition, 92% knew the person bullying them.
Parents and carers are encouraged to attend sessions on Tuesday from 12.30pm-2.30pm at Elgin Academy community room or from 7pm-9pm at Elgin Town Hall.
A further session for people who work with children or young people will take place on Wednesday from 9.30am-11.30am at Elgin Academy.
The sessions are all free to attend.
