Anti-Bullying Week is a great opportunity as a school to talk about bullying and review your practices. But it is vital students are also involved and heard throughout your Anti-Bullying Week activities. Consulting with young people, the Anti-Bullying Alliance and the Diana Award have come up with 10 tips on how you can engage young people. It is also available as a downloadable handout infographic at the bottom of the page.
