Anti-Bullying Week - view our curated set of films and download our free resource!

14th November, 2012

Working with the theme of this year’s Anti-Bullying Week - "Making Bullying Unacceptable" - we have curated a thought-provoking series of films which highlight the importance of taking a stand when you see someone in trouble.

Our accompanying in-depth resource encourages clubs to discuss the effects of bullying on the victim and the bully, and the various methods to stop the bullying. Anti-Bullying Week takes place 19 - 23 November.
