Anti – Bullying Week

Anti-bullying week is happening across Scotland from 13 -17 November.

This year the focus is on preventing bullying by fostering positive cultures based on respect.
Everyone has a right to live free from bullying and harassment. When we behave respectfully towards each other, we help create environments where bullying cannot thrive and children’s rights are fully realised.

Each of us has a role to play, join the conversation today by sharing what #respectmeans to you.
