Bullying can have a huge impact on a child’s self-esteem and mental health. With a recent survey revealing that one in five children experienced some sort of bullying in the past 12 months, it’s important that adults and young people work together to help prevent it. That’s where Anti-Bullying Week (12-16 November 2018) comes in.
