When you organise fundraisers or create a charity hour you gain vital experience in dealing with others in your own society, whether it be at school, in the community or at the office.

Charity fundraisers can even be great fun. We have had some wonderful feedback from volunteers who have used the opportunity to do something either social or sporting and raise valuable funds for us. 

To sum up, to get involved with Act Against Bullying charity can be good for the self-confidence of young people in several ways:

#1. Sense of Purpose: By helping others through charity work, young people can develop a sense of purpose and meaning in their lives. This can help them feel more confident in their abilities and direction in life.

#2. Skill Development: Charity work often requires specific skills and knowledge, such as event planning, fundraising, and communication skills. Young people can gain confidence in their abilities as they learn and develop these skills through their charity work.

#3. Positive Feedback: Volunteering and charity work often come with positive feedback and recognition from others, such as thank-you letters, awards, or public recognition. This positive feedback can boost self-confidence and self-esteem in young people.

#4. Social Connections: Charity work often involves working with others towards a common goal. This can help young people develop social connections and a sense of belonging, which can also contribute to their confidence and well-being.

Why what we do matters...

Because bullying is a serious issue that can have lasting and damaging effects on  people and society itself. Bullying can cause physical and emotional harm, lead to feelings of fear, anxiety, and depression, and can even contribute to suicide.

By raising awareness about the negative impact of bullying,  Act Against Bullying can help create safer spaces for everone. We can influence change by way of promoting policies that reduce bullying to occur, educate schools and the public in general about the harm caused by bullying, and provide support for those who have been affected.

Additionally, what we do can promote empathy, kindness, and respect for others. By highlighting the experiences of those who have been bullied and encouraging people to stand up against it, we can help create a culture of tolerance and compassion.

Overall, it matters because it helps to address the root causes of bullying and to create a world where everyone feels valued, respected, and safe.
