Our Sincere Condolences

The untimely death, of Ayden Olson, has been drawn to our attention,

Any death is a sorrowful and devastating occasion; for one so young, it is doubly-so.

Our thoughts are with Ayden's family and friends, at this time.

What is Ayden’s Law?

"On 14 March 2013, 14 year old Ayden Olson took his own life. He'd been bullied to death. Tragically, Ayden's name is only the latest to be added to a growing list. But while the victims themselves may have found peace, their families are left behind, scarred forever by the agony of losing a child.

Ayden's Law is a campaign on behalf of all those young people, their families and any child or young person being bullied today.

BeatBullying, The Sun, and families of chilren like Ayden are calling on the Prime Minister to take action. We want to call a summit with him and relevant ministers to discuss how we can prevent any more tragedies — and the creation of Ayden's Law, a new children's anti-bullying bill designed to stop bullying in our society once and for all.

Making Bullying Illegal: Why I Can’t Support Ayden’s Law

"I'm not saying that bullying is a trivial matter. It's not. I reiterate that bullying is unacceptable. But falling out with each other and learning to how to behave when this happens is healthy. This isn't bullying and is all too often termed as such. If such natural and constructive behaviour is stigmatised and criminalised we are standing in the way of our childrens development."
