Anti-Bullying Week 2022: Pledge your support

This year’s Anti-Bullying Week takes place from the 14th to 18th of November and British Judo is joining the Anti-Bullying Alliance, urging everyone to #ReachOut.  

British Judo is getting ready to support Anti-Bullying Week by reaching out to the British Judo members and the wider judo community, in a plea to join the Association in being united against bullying. British Judo has pledged its support, joining more than 800 organisations and schools who have also put forward their pledge.

British Judo is encouraging clubs across the nation to get involved and support the campaign by making their own club pledge.

To find out more about how your club can support Anti-Bullying week and to put forward a pledge of support, visit the anti-bullying alliance website below.

Next Monday, there is a special day to mark the start of the campaign. Odd Socks Day will kick things off Anti-Bullying Week on Monday 14th November, acting as an opportunity to encourage people to express themselves whilst spreading an important message: ‘ we should all be allowed to be ourselves free from bullying.’

British Judo will be putting on their odd socks to show how unique we all are – We look forward to seeing your Odd Socks Day with us on our social media platforms: Instagram, Facebook and Twitter!

Throughout Anti-Bullying Week, the Anti-Bullying Alliance will be sharing useful resources and support in a wide range of settings to combat bullying. You can also offer support by donating to the Anti-Bullying Alliance, donations make it possible for the charity to continue offering support to children, parents, carers, teachers and professionals in the fight against bullying.

“Bullying affects millions of lives and can leave us feeling hopeless. But it doesn’t have to be this way. If we challenge it, we can change it. And it starts by reaching out. It takes courage, but it can change lives. So, this Anti-Bullying Week, let’s come together and reach out to stop bullying.”
