Message from Sam...
  Ask Sam

For Anti-Bullying Week I asked you to send your questions about bullying to Lee, who is from the Northern Ireland Anti-Bullying Forum. We received lots of messages and you can read Lee’s helpful advice here.

You can also read letters about other issues further down this page. If there’s something on your mind, you can always ask me for some advice. Remember that I can’t answer every letter that I get, but I will answer as many as possible.   

Take care,
Sam
