Today is the start of Anti-Bullying Week and the annual Odd Socks Day event. To kick it off in style the LOVELIVE team have put their best feet forward, virtually and with our families, to help support the Anti-Bullying Alliance and the work they do.
The 2020 theme is ‘United Against Bullying’ and this year, more than ever, we’ve witnessed the positive power that society can have when we come together to tackle a common challenge.
Bullying has a long-lasting effect on those who experience and witness it. But by channelling our collective power, through shared efforts and shared ambitions, we can reduce bullying together. From parents and carers, to teachers and politicians, to children and young adults, we all have a part to play in coming together to make a difference.
Facts on Bullying:
- Before the age of 18, 45% of young people have experienced some sort of bullying
- Over 16,000 children reject going to school because of bullying
- 7/10 people from age 13-22 have experienced cyberbullying
