Bullying behaviour is a social problem most commonly associated with schools and workplaces but can take place in any environment where people live, work and play together.
Bullying can be displayed by or targeted towards individuals or groups and is a significant concern for many children and young people as well as adults.
Anti-Bullying Week is an annual event organised by respectme, Scotland's Anti-Bullying Service. This year the theme is ‘We’re better without bullying’ and takes place from Monday 19 to Friday 23 November. The week is designed to raise awareness of anti-bullying initiatives among children, young people and adults across the UK and Ireland.
