Get involved in Anti-Bullying Week - at work

It's crucial that workplaces around the country get involved in Anti-Bullying Week to raise awareness around homophobic bullying. We've come up with some ideas below but feel free to think of your own – we’d love to hear about them and support you in any way we can. Download our Workplace Fundraising Pack here.

Do your homework! 

Take part in our campaign urging schools to tackle homophobic bullying. Click here to write to your old or local school and you could win one of these amazing prizes!

  • Meet Sir Ian McKellen! Join Sir Ian on a Stonewall Role Model School Visit and meet the star over coffee afterwards. Your chance to see our anti-bullying work in action.
  • Tickets to ITV's Dancing on Ice. Thank you to the lovely people at ITV!
  • A luxury Whole Foods hamper – worth £170! Thank you to Whole Foods Market Piccadilly Circus for donating this prize.

Also, for the Employee Network Group or Workplace with the most letters sent we will have a special prize - to be announced soon! If everyone does their homework, we can make schools a better place for all young people.

Say cappucci-no to bullying!  

Hold a coffee morning in aid of Stonewall and ask your colleagues to donate £1 per coffee. You could even drink out of your very own ‘Some people are gay. Get over it’ mug – available here.* Also, Krispy Kreme have an amazing special offer, where you can buy discounted doughnuts to sell to colleagues and raise money for charity.

Small change goes a long way 

Why not encourage colleagues to part with a little small change to help Stonewall tackle homophobic bullying? Here are our ideas:

  • Faux pas jar – £1 in the jar for swearing, annoying colleagues or using language such as ‘that’s so gay’ in the office. Offer a prize (such as a Stonewall mug) for the most improved colleague over the week!
  • School board - £1 to enter a ‘guess the colleague’ or ‘favourite baby’ competition
