Too often we are silent when we see bullying taking place, silent about the hurt bullying behaviour causes and silent when we hear bullying behaviour being dismissed as ‘just banter’.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Of course, we won’t get on with everyone and we won’t always agree, but it doesn’t have to lead to bullying. We can choose respect, kindness and unity.
This Anti-Bullying week let’s join together and talk about what bullying behaviour means to us, how banter can turn into something hurtful and what we can do to stop bullying behaviour from happening. Together, we can take a stand against bullying behaviour and Make a Difference.
From the Playground to Parliment and from our Phones to our Homes, let’s Make a Noise about bullying behaviour.
This year, as usual, we will be delivering our many workshops and training programmes in schools and youth settings.
Schools will be able to download free activity resources and purchase our activity kits.
Our Patron, Nigel Owens MBE is supporting the campaign.
For older children, social media is an important part of Anti-Bullying Week, and a great opportunity for schools to share with the education community how they’ve embraced the anti-bullying message. Research from the Anti-Bullying Alliance showed that last year, you helped #AntiBullyingWeek trend at No.1 on Twitter and reach over 44 million users on TikTok.
