Anti-bullying Week is organised by the Anti-Bullying Alliance and the Northern Ireland Anti-Bullying Forum and will run between 12th and 16th November. The theme this year is ‘Choose Respect’. The aim of the week is to support those organisations responsible for children in helping young people understand what respect is, and how it should be chosen over bullying, a ‘behaviour choice’.
