Go Purple is BulliesOut’s fundraising and awareness campaign to recognise all those who are suffering or have suffered from bullying.
We’re asking individuals and businesses to get involved and help us highlight and raise awareness of this devastating behaviour while at the same time raising money for our much needed work.
Anti-bullying week is 11th – 16th November 2019, so what better time to take part
As bullying affects 1 in 2 young people and 1 in 3 adults, we all know someone who has been affected by it. Bullying creates a culture of fear and has a negative impact on everyone involved. Being bullied can seriously affect a person’s confidence, self-esteem, social and academic well-being and their mental health and the effects of bullying can last for many years to come.
Go Purple will help raise awareness and encourage people to speak out against bullying.
Register for Go Purple and closer to the date, we’ll send you a free fundraising and awareness pack
There are lots of ways you can get involved and help us #MakeADifference. Whatever you do, don’t forget to share your photos and stories with us. Why not contact your local press and let them know you’re doing something great to raise awareness of bullying?
If you are being bullied or are concerned about someone who is, you can receive help and support from one of our trained Mentors. We currently do not have the ability to provide support face to face or via the telephone and can only provide an e-mentoring service to those affected by bullying.
If you would like a Mentor to email you, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would rather speak to someone over the telephone, you can call Childline on: 0800 1111
For any community-related issues, such as anti-social behaviour, we would suggest contacting your landlord, the local police or your local environmental health department (where applicable), as we are unable to deal with these types of complaints.
