Anti-Bullying Week 2021 is taking place from Monday 15 to Friday 19 November 2021. This year's theme is One Kind Word. We asked the youth of Waltham Forest to share their experiences with bullying and mental health and if they had any advice for their peers, what would it be?
Read our youth blogs and listen to young carer's talk about their experience with bullying!
"He's not like other boys, is he?"

Thank you Ewan for sharing your experience with us. We are sure this will inspire and help others with their battles.
