This year, Anti-Bullying Week runs from the 16th-29th November and is focused on the theme: United Against Bullying.
The annual awareness event is organised by the Anti-Bullying Alliance who worked with over 300 young people and 100 school staff to develop this year’s theme and their manifesto for change:
“This year, more than ever, we’ve witnessed the positive power that society can have when we come together to tackle a common challenge.
Anti-Bullying Week is no different. Bullying has a long-lasting effect on those who experience and witness it. But by channelling our collective power, through shared efforts and shared ambitions, we can reduce bullying together. From parents and carers, to teachers and politicians, to children and young people, we all have a part to play in coming together to make a difference.
We’re all a piece in the puzzle, and together, we’re united against bullying.”
