Kidscape is a bullying prevention charity working with children, families and schools throughout England and Wales. They are best known for running ZAP resilience and assertiveness workshops in schools and the community, helping children recognise and respond to bullying. Queensway Orthodontics, who run five practices in the North East of England, see thousands of children each year and are passionate about helping children to grow in confidence – both inside and out!
As well as raising vital funds for the charity, members of the Queensway Orthodontics team have trained as Kidscape Community Leaders, able to identify, help and signpost children and families who may be impacted by bullying.
Together we have launched a campaign #ILoveMe - which focusses on sharing advice and resources to help children grow in confidence and self-esteem, to be proud of who they are, kind and considerate towards others, and looking towards a bright future.

We hope that this will encourage many others working in orthodontics and dentistry to look for broader opportunities to positively influence and inspire young lives.
