FUSE is an Anti-Bullying and Online Safety programme developed by DCU Anti-Bullying Centre, supported by the Department of Education. The programme launched in September 2019 across Ireland and is free to all schools.
FUSE is grounded in Irish and international best practice research, consisting of a series of workshops and projects for schools to build capacity in tackling bullying and online safety.
Always at the centre of this programme are young people. FUSE aims to support and empower young people to find solutions and initiatives themselves, to tackle bullying and online safety.
FUSE is also a research and evaluation programme, enabling schools to identify areas of improvement and self-evaluation. The curriculum focuses on empowering students to develop initiatives in their schools which tackle bullying and raise awareness of online safety.
FUSE is available for 4th and 5th class students in Primary school and for 2nd Year students in Post-Primary School. For more information, log onto FUSE and see how your school or your child’s school can get involved.
