Can't Bully Me follows four young people aged 12-14 as they endeavour to overcome the traumatic effects of bullying. They attend a network of specialised centres for kids who've been so badly affected by their experiences that they can no longer attend mainstream school.

Filmed over eight months, the programme has unique access to the Red Balloon Learner centres in Cambridge and North West London where Billy, Adam, Phoenix and Toby are helped to come to terms with the past, overcome their fears and rebuild their confidence so that they can return to school or mainstream life as soon as possible.
