Coinciding with anti-bullying awareness week (14th – 20th November), our campaign looks to ‘break the barriers that bullying creates’.
But what exactly does this mean?
Being bullied is an isolating experience. Your confidence and self-worth plummets and you struggle to see a way out of it.
You may blame yourself, shrinking who you are and making yourself smaller to ‘fit in’.
All of these are barriers to who you really are; stopping you from growing as a person and exploring your true potential.
These are the barriers we want to break.
How can we break these barriers?
Our survey of over 1000 people revealed that 70% of bullying victims do not seek support from anyone.
We want to change this by encouraging both those being bullied, and those with the power to help, to reach out.
One in two of us are affected by bullying, so none of us are alone in our struggle.
How can you help?
The more people speak out and show their support, the more confident we can all be in seeking help and talking about bullying.
