Why not set up an awareness stand or create an information board so that your friends/students/employees/customers can learn more about bullying and how it affects a person’s well-being, the work of BulliesOut and how we help.
We have information flyers and posters that we can send you or our posters can also be downloaded from our website.
Pop into your local supermarket, library, community centre or GP Surgery and ask if they would allow you to set up an awareness stand or display some posters and flyers.
You could also try encouraging other local businesses to get involved – coffee shops, hairdressers, beauty rooms, florists etc. Turn your local High Street purple and raise awareness of bullying. The more awareness we have, the more people will feel inspired and encouraged to speak out.
We’re here to help so if you would like any additional guidance or support with your fundraising just let us know. The more support you have, the more successful you will be.
If you need further resources, we can pop some in the post or some can be downloaded from our website.

Charlie joined BulliesOut in 2017 as she has been bullied a lot in her life. Charlie has Autism and other disabilities that have often led her to being treated differently, excluded and mistreated by other children and even adults.
Since becoming a Youth Ambassador Charlie has helped make changes at her special needs school by making display boards that all the children with their different needs can understand. She has taken part in a photo shoot and wrote an article to raise awareness of bullying and this has been published in a magazine. Charlie is now working towards a Youth Achievement Award and has any exciting things planned. Her confidence has grown and she has made some lovely new friends, many who have had similar experiences to her. Charlie says ‘It’s really nice to know you’re not alone. Thank you BulliesOut for letting me be part of your amazing team’
We’re privileged to be able to make things happen but we know we can’t do this on our own. We need the support of individuals and groups of passionate people who share our vision – to improve the lives of those affected by bullying.
By taking part in Go Purple, you can help us raise awareness, raise funds, have fun and #MakeaDifference
Whatever you decide to do, remember to keep in touch to let us know what you have planned.
Send us your photographs and we’ll showcase them to our followers!
