anti bullying week happens across england each november. this year it is happening from monday 11 - friday 15 november.
This year's Anti-Bullying Week has the theme 'Change Starts With Us.' Whether it is verbal, physical, online or in-person, bullying has a significant impact on a child's life well into adulthood. By making small, simple changes, we can break this cycle and create a safe environment for everyone.
Gloucestershire FA and Anti-Bullying Alliance want to empower children to speak out, to equip those working with them to be more aware of bullying when it happens and to help parents and carers have conversations with their children about bullying - both as a way of preventing bullying, and to help children who are worried about bullying.
Because together, we can challenge bullying. Change starts with a conversation. It starts with checking in. It starts with working together. Change starts here. Change starts now. Change starts with us.
