Education recruiter pens anti-bullying anthem to mark Anti-Bullying Week 2012

Itper – the Education Recruiter pens anti-bullying anthem for Anti-Bullying Week 2012

In a move which could be the first of it’s kind, a leading children’s charity has partnered with an education staffing company in order to reach thousands of children and young people with an anti-bullying message.

The Songwriting Charity is proud to announce that it has partnered with Itper – The Education Recruiter. The partnership is being launched with a fundraising drive focusing on the charity’s BullyBeat songwriting programme. The partnership is an exciting one and will really boost the charity’s efforts to reach many more children and young people, improving their self-esteem, confidence and overall wellbeing.

Nathan Timothy, CEO of the Songwriting Charity said, “We recently worked with the Itper‘s entire London team. They set about writing their own BullyBeat song, “Never Alone”. Some stars were born that day!.” Nathan continued, “Itper’s willingness to show their solidarity with the thousands of children out there who are affected by bullying, was heartfelt. Their song carries a universal and very powerful message, and we are so proud to be working in partnership with Itper.”

Tim Mirsadeghi, Managing Director of Itper commented: “Corporate Social Responsibility is something Itper take’s seriously. Having witnessed the positive and immediate results of the inspirational songwriting workshops run by the Songwriting Charity in schools, we decided that we wanted to get fully involved. Not just in the background, but as a full Partner to an extraordinary children’s charity.

“At a time when private agencies are often in the news for all the wrong reasons, it’s really nice for Itper to be part of such a good news story. We’re therefore delighted to announce our Partnership with The Songwriting Charity – it’s an incredible opportunity for Itper, our teachers and our schools to make a positive difference to young people’s lives.”

“Never Alone” is available to download from http://soundcloud.com/the-songwriting-charity/itper-workshop. The music video to accompany the song is available to watch on the charity’s Youtube Channel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Lpw-xLEqdA
