Support Group Network aims to maximise the support available to
bullied targets by helping to build up the number of workplace
bullying support groups worldwide. We
currently have 6 groups in the various stages of starting up, three
in England, one in Scotland, one in France and one in South Africa.
of the Network for someone wishing to set up a new group can provide
the experience of established group organisers, personal support
and online discussion. A resource library is also available to
Network members that includes many of the processes, policies and
ideas that you may need to set up your group plus specially written
material including a paper on Sustainable Support Systems for Workplace
Bullying Support Groups.
addition, jfo is committed to the Network and offers website design,
hosting and email forwarding free of charge to those groups who
share a similar commitment. This offer is made because it is understood
that support groups are usually without funding and targets are
often not in a position to help towards costs. This offer from
jfo will save the group annual domain and hosting fees, whilst
allowing a voice on the internet, although groups may still have
their own domain and still host on jfo. All content is entirely
the responsibility of the individual group. More details on this
can be found here.
welcome applications to join the Network from anyone considering
setting up a group in any country, the job is unpaid but highly
satisfying! We will help you all we can in the set up and in the
promotion of your group, and then on an ongoing basis as a member
of the Network.
jfo:i, there are many different experiences that people may share.
One of these is helping others and includes those who set up support
groups. Why not have a read to see what you can get out of running
a support group?
there could never be enough support groups, some areas have a higher
concentration of groups than others. We would particularly encourage
new support groups in the US, Canada and Australia.
