Anti-Bullying Week takes place from

14th – 18th November 2022

and the theme is Reach Out

The theme of Reach Out came about following consultation with teachers and pupils by the Anti-Bullying Alliance which coordinates Anti-Bullying Week every year in England and Wales. Teachers and children wanted a theme that empowered them to do something positive to counter the harm and hurt that bullying behaviour causes.

Following the success of the campaign in 2021 – when a jaw-dropping 80% of schools marked the week reaching over 7.5 million children and young people – Anti-Bullying Week will remind everyone whether it’s in school, at home, in the community or online, to Reach Out and show each other the support we need.


Our Call To Action

  • Millions of people are affected by bullying behaviour and it can leave us feeling devastated. But, if we challenge it, we can change it. So let’s all start by Reaching Out.
  • Support is vital to those affected by bullying behaviour so whether in schools, the community, at home, in the workplace or online, let’s all Reach Out and give each other the support that is needed. Reach Out if you need to talk. Reach Out to someone you see being bullied. Reach Out and be a positive role model.
  • Reflecting on our own behaviour, setting positive examples and creating kinder communities is the responsibility of everyone.  Children and young people, parents and teachers, influencers and politicians, we all need to Reach Out and support one another. Together, we can be the change we want to see.
  • Speaking out takes courage, but it can change lives. So this Anti-Bullying week, join us and Reach Out to help stop bullying behaviour.

Our Plans for Anti-Bullying Week

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.

In the coming months we will:
