ABOUT ANTI-BULLYING WEEK 2018
Our research shows that more than half of people under 25 will, at some point, experience bullying. As a result, 1 in 3 will self-harm, grades will drop and 37% will experience social anxiety and depression. Bullying is a national emergency and continues to undermine the self-esteem, health and potential of millions in the UK.
This year we are using Anti-Bullying Week to encourage people to speak up about bullying. We also invite activists, teachers, parents/guardians, businesses and other interested parties to help us eradicate bullying and improve the lives of millions by pledging support for Ditch the Label.
Anti-Bullying Week 2018 is being held between Monday 12th – Friday 16th November.

Our resources are designed for KS3 and KS4 students. At Ditch the Label, we tackle real-world issues head-on, so some of these resources contain mature content. Each lesson is designed to last 60 minutes, whilst the assemblies should take roughly 5-10 minutes to deliver.
