Bullying makes the lives of its victims a misery: it undermines their confidence and self esteem; and destroys their sense of security. Bullying impacts on its victims' attendance and attainment at school, marginalises those groups who may be particular targets for bullies and can have a life-long negative impact on some young people's lives. At worst, bullying has been a factor in pupil suicide. (DCSF, 2007c, p. 8) In an unfair culture, where academic performance determines hierarchy, prejudice is not only hurtful to some, but lack of development in practice will affect all children negatively: There is also evidence that a substantial amount of bullying is fuelled by prejudice racial, religious, and homophobic - and against children with special educational needs or disabilities or who are perceived as different in some way.

For many households, the negative impact of unpleasant surroundings, unfair wages and proportionally higher taxes creates an unbreakable cycle of poverty. Unfairness in wealth distribution creates an increasing discrepancy between different communities' environments that impact on the wellbeing of a growing proportion of households.
