U.K. National Anti-Bullying Week is 16 to 20 November 2009: the theme for 2009 is "Stay safe in cyberspace" (News Item)

06/10/2009

Held in November each year, Anti-Bullying Week is run by the Anti- Bullying Alliance with funding support from the UK Department for Schools, Children and Families.
This year's Anti-Bullying Week Campaign is "Stay Safe in Cyberspace". The focus will be on cyberbullying - the use of information and communications technology (ICT), particularly mobile phones and the internet, to deliberately someone else. Research has shown that more than a third of UK 12 - 15 year olds have faced some form of cyberbullying.

A key message for this year's Anti Bullying Week is that modern technologies remain a positive and productive part of the lives of children and young people and can be used safely and constructively.
