HOW WE WORK TOGETHER WITH NATIONWIDE BUILDING SOCIETY TO HELP BUILD MUTUAL RESPECT AND PUT AN END TO BULLYING_

Our three year partnership with Nationwide Building Society will result in an extra 10,000 Anti-Bullying Ambassadors in over 660 primary schools up and down the UK.

As Britain’s biggest building society, Nationwide is committed to investing in and improving communities across the UK.

Nationwide hopes it can use its position as a mutual organisation owned by its members and one of the UK’s largest financial services providers to support The Diana Award’s Anti-Bullying Campaign.

A recent survey commissioned by The Diana Award and Nationwide of 1,000 children ages 6-16 and parents found that:

One in three (33%) parents

feel their child will struggle to integrate into social groups when they return to school after lockdown.

Half (51%) of young people

who have previously been bullied have worried about going back to school after a holiday because of bullying, and over a third (34%) of all young people are more worried about returning to school after lockdown.

Almost half (45%) of parents

said lockdown had impacted their child’s mental health and well-being.

Almost half (46%) of young people

have been bullied at school at some point in their life, with over half (54%) saying it negatively affected their mental health and well-being, more than three quarters (78%) saying it caused them to feel anxious and almost half (44%) saying it affected their ability to sleep and night.

Almost three quarters (67%) of young people

have seen or heard bullying behaviour in their school in the last year.

The Big Anti-Bullying Assembly brought together over two million children and school staff, empowering them to tackle bullying with a host of celebrities.
