Anti-Bullying Week 2020 takes place in England from 16th – 20th November, starting with Odd Socks Day. The event is organised by the Anti-Bullying Alliance and intends to raise awareness of bullying among children, particularly in schools.

Last year 75% of schools in the country took part, reaching well over 7 million young people nationwide. Children and their parents are encouraged to participate in activities throughout the week to raise awareness of the problems and explore the ways to prevent bullying. The aim is to create a safe environment that allows students to open up about their feelings and receive the necessary support.
