UK Gov’t Channels £1.3 Million Into Anti-Cyber-Bullying Nonprofit

Today Emma-Jane Cross, the chief executive of Beatbullying, announced that Nick Hurd (right), the UK’s Minister for Civil Society, is awarding £1.3 million from The Social Action Fund to transform Beatbullying into We’re Altogether Better, a not-for-profit organization that will “tackle social issues digitally.”

Hmm, “We’re Altogether Better”? Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

In a statement to the press, Hurd said that the organization will now report to his office and that public money will be mainly directed toward “recruitment and development of 10,000 new volunteers, who will take social action online to help children and young people in crisis.”
