WHY STAND UP TO BULLYING?

Stand Up to Bullying Day was launched in 2016 with the support of HRH The Duke of Cambridge. The day seeks to bring the nation together to take a collective stand against all forms of bullying, whether in school, the workplace or elsewhere.

Last year the campaign reached over three million people with famous faces such as Jessie J, James McVey and numerous MPs joining the nation to #StandUpToBullying.

Standing up means being an upstander, not a bystander. It means calling others out when their actions are unkind, reporting conversations online that don't look right and creating a community that will speak out and stand up to bullying.

The Stand Up To Bullying Day campaign is powered by The Diana Award. Our mission is to develop and inspire positive change in the future of young people. We believe that young people have the power to change the world.

The Diana Award was established in 1999 by the British Government who wanted continue Princess Diana’s legacy by establishing a formal way to recognise young people who were going above and beyond the expected in their local communities. Too many young voices go unheard; our work strives to help elevate those voices onto a higher platform through our Award Programme, Mentoring and Anti-Bullying Campaign.
