Anti-Bullying Week

Bullying UK is part of the Family Lives charity which has over 30 years’ experience helping parents to deal with the changes that are a constant part of family life. They provide a listening, supportive and non-judgemental service to children and adults.

According to The Annual Bullying Survey 2015, 50% of young people have bullied another person, 30% of which do it at least once a week. 69% of young people have witnessed somebody else being bullied, 43% of which see it at least once a week. 43% of young people have been bullied and 44% of which are bullied at least once a week. 

These shocking statistics involved 73 UK schools and colleges including 4800 young people, 13 to 20 year old.  

How can we reduce these numbers?

Anti-Bullying Week is held from 16th – 20th November and is a brilliant campaign that helps raise awareness in schools and take a stand against bullying. Get involved and use the theme “make a noise about bullying” which is organised by Anti-Bullying Alliance.
