The anti-bullying charity has also produced wristbands for our #wearbluecampaign that schools and families can wear to support children who experiencing bullying. Visit our wear blue page for more information. 

Ben Cohen from The Ben Cohen Stand Up Foundation said:

“We’re supporting Bullying UK’s #WearBluecampaign during anti-bullying week 2015 as it’s a great opportunity to get schools throughout the UK to promote positive messages about anti-bullying, raise awareness of how your school protects children from bullying, and have fun at the same time.”

Jeremy Todd, Chief Executive of Bullying UK said:

“Family Lives are dedicated followers of fashion and on the 20th November, anything of a blue hue can be worn from blue jeans, blue tank-top or blue suede shoes. Feel free to wear something really outrageous and stand out for bullying during anti-bullying week!”

Bullying UK is also offering downloadable superhero masks for younger children to decorate and wear alongside other anti-bullying week resources which include classroom flash cards, presentations, interactive anti bullying videos and posters.
