Host say no to bullying: Anti-Bullying Week in action

Whether it’s at school, university, work or socially, anyone, of any age can fall victim to bullying. And sadly, the effects of bullying can have a massive impact on an individual and those around them.

Bullying can be physical and therefore an individual may be hurt and physically affected. But bullying can also be verbal, emotional or take place online; all of which can negatively affect an individual’s mental health.

That’s why we’re getting involved with Anti-Bullying Week (Monday 16th – Friday 20th November 2020); we want to make a stand against bullying and help raise awareness across our accommodations.

Going Purple for BulliesOut

This week we’re busy going purple; both in person and online. Why purple? Because we’re supporting our nominated charity, BulliesOut, and their anti-bullying campaign, Go Purple; which aims to help raise awareness and encourage people to speak out against bullying.

We’ve switched our social media pages to purple, we’re donning the purple clobber and we’re even enjoying some tasty purple treats. But more than that, we’re providing a place for students to learn more about BulliesOut and the support available for anyone suffering from bullying.

More information

If you or someone you know is experiencing any form of bullying, it’s important that you seek help and support. Whether it’s by speaking with a friend or family member, someone at your university or even a member of the Host team, making someone aware of any problems is the first step to resolving them.

Alternatively, there is a wide variety of information and resources available online which you can easily access; including those available from BulliesOut.
