Anti-Bullying Week 2022 - #Reachout

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.

Anti-Bullying Week 2022 is happening this Monday 14 to Friday 18 November with the theme #ReachOut.

Let's Get Connected

Everyone feels lonely from time to time - loneliness can affect anyone and the recent pandemic has increased a lot of people's feelings of being alone.

But there's plenty of things we can all do to help ourselves, and others, to feel more connected and less along.

Hedging your bets!

Britain lost half its hedgerows in the decades after the second world war as farmers were encouraged to create large arable fields to increase production. Since then, legal protections have been introduced and hedges are no longer being ripped out, but the decline has continued due to poor management of our remaining hedges. But help is at hand through a growing demand for traditional hedgelaying.
