Tootoot co-founders Michael Brennan, 27, and Kieran Innes, 26, have been named on the 2018 Forbes 30 under 30 Europe list. Announced at a ceremony in London on Monday 22nd January, the co-founders were honoured for the work they have done taking the fight against bullying digital.

Together they built an app that allows pupils to anonymously report concerns such as bullying and harassment, whilst also providing a simple way for staff to manage and respond to the concerns.The idea for tootoot came from the relentless bullying tootoot CEO Michael Brennan experienced growing up. He found that support systems such as anti-bullying helplines eased his problems, but because they couldn’t feed back to his school his problems were never fully solved. He quickly realised that there was no digital solution that closed the feedback loop and allowed children to confidentially and discretely report their concerns, yet every child had access to a mobile device. It was during this time he joined forces with tootoot co-founder and CTO Kieran Innes who led on the development of the app.

Pupil Voice Week 2017 aims to celebrate the diversity and individuality of the pupil voice, encouraging pupils to use their voice be themselves and create positivity for those around them. We are lucky to have some fantastic partners supporting the week this year. eAWARE provide digital safeguarding in schools, in this blog their Lead Content Developer Joe Brewer explores the role pupil voice plays when tackling cyberbullying.

“No one should suffer in silence.” How many times have you heard that saying? Plenty I’m sure. Now ask yourself “How many times have I worried or been silenced, not knowing who to talk to and in turn suffered alone?”. If you’re like me then probably more times than you’re proud to admit.

Whilst my time at school was mostly happy there were occasions where bullying, both online and offline, got the better of me. I’d go home worrying about the next school day, feel isolated from my peers and worst of all, keep my worries to myself. Bullies had stripped me of my voice, I couldn’t speak up, challenge or report their behaviour.
