Who will you be supporting?
We are a UK-based charity that works tirelessly to end bullying in schools, communities, and online. The organisation provides support to young people affected by bullying and raises awareness about the issue to help prevent it from happening in the first place.
Why host a fundraising event for our cause?
Because our work matters. Bullying is a serious issue that affects millions of young people in the UK each year. Therefore by hosting a fundraising event for Act Against Bullying, you can help to raise awareness about this issue and to provide support to all victims, but in particular young people affected by bullying.
Is it easy to do?
Whether you’re organising a small bake sale or a large charity gala, there are a few key steps you should follow hosting a fundraising event to ensure the success of your event.
Step 1: Choose a venue
The first step in setting up a fundraising event is to choose a venue. Consider the number of attendees you expect, the type of event you want to host, and the location of your event. You might choose to hold the fundraiser at your school, in a park, or at your office for example.
Step 2: Determine your budget
Next, determine your budget for the event. This will help you to make decisions about the types of food and drinks to serve, decorations to buy, and other expenses associated hosting an event.
Step 3: Plan your activities
Once you have a venue and a budget in place, start planning what you are going to do. This might include a silent auction, a raffle, live music, or games and activities for children. Make sure to choose fun things that will appeal to your target audience and that will raise money for Act Against Bullying.
Step 4: Promote your event
Now it’s time to start promoting your special fundraising gig. Spread the word through social media, email, and word of mouth. Consider creating an event page on a platform like Just Giving when hosting a fundraising event. It’s also smart to share updates and information with people who are coming along.
Step 5: Enjoy the event
Finally a funraising event should be memorable. Make sure to have plenty of volunteers on hand to help with setup, registration, and other tasks. Provide clear instructions for guests and be sure to follow all local laws and regulations!
Whether you’re looking to support us or someone else, to make a difference in your community, or simply to have fun while doing good, hosting a fundraising event is a great way to get involved in charitable activities and to make a positive impact.

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.
