Being an active bystander 

An active bystander (or upstander) means being aware of when someone’s behaviour is inappropriate or threatening and choosing to intervene and offer assistance.

What is the bystander effect?
The bystander effect occurs when the presence of others discourages an individual from intervening in an emergency, against a bully, or during an assault or other crime. The greater
the number of bystanders, the less likely it is for any one of them to initiate help for a person in distress. People are more likely to act in a crisis when there are few or no other witnesses present.

How can we be active bystanders?
  • Don't expect others to be the first to act
  • Take responsibility to do something
  • Encourage others to get involved
  • Empathise with the victim
  • A small act of kindness can make a big difference
  • Call for support
  • If it is not safe to intervene, call the police.
