Choose Kindness

#ChooseKindness with Bullying UK and help stand up to bullying

Bullying UK is encouraging people to #ChooseKindness and help stand up to bullying. In our National Bullying Survey in 2016, we found that: 

  • 50% of young people were bullied about how they looked
  • 81% of young people were called horrible names by others
  • 55% of young people were left out by their friends

No-one ever knows the struggles people are going through inside and we believe that a simple act of kindness can help a person feel empowered to stand up to bullying. We are encouraging everyone to get involved in choosing kindness and be the reason to make someone smile.
