Stand out, Be kind

Say no to bullying

50% of teens worry about bullies

100% of parents worry about their teens being bullied

We’ve teamed up with The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Campaign to empower young people to tackle bullying in their schools and communities. Their Anti-Bullying Ambassadors Programme has already trained over 20,000 young people across the UK to lead on anti-bullying campaigns in their schools. To support this programme we have recruited a #NeonSquad to inspire other young people with their anti-bullying stories.
