The CEO of Bigclothing4u and also an Ambassador for Anna Kennedy Online has an important message about the Give Us a Break campaign.

Ben says: “It’s important for us all to look out for one another because you never know what someone else is going through. We all have our own battles big or small that we are fighting. One Kind Word goes a long way to a friend or stranger. It really is powerful enough to make the difference between someone having a good or a bad day. I think it’s amazing that we all have the power to change someone’s day for the better. Why be hateful when you can be kind?”

Ben’s article:

Anti-Bullying Week is back to remind us how we can make the world a brighter place for one another. Last year, Anti-Bullying Week trended as No.1 on Twitter with schools up and down the country spreading awareness to the effects of bullying. Putting a stop to bullying was at the forefront of everyone’s mind and we hope there will be an even bigger buzz this year. 

With 1 in 5 children in the UK experiencing bullying, Team BC4U is proud to be teaming up with Anna Kennedy Online for their amazing Give us a Break campaign. This campaign highlights how children and young people who are diagnosed with Autism can experience bullying at a higher rate than their peers.

The most crucial time this happens is during social breaks and lunch times while at school or college, which can already be a difficult time to navigate for the young people that might struggle with social interactions.

It’s no secret that Autism Awareness is something we strongly support and it goes without saying that we want to stamp out hatred and prejudice wherever possible. That’s why we wanted to get involved with the great work that Anna Kennedy Online achieves and join them in spreading awareness of the negative effects of bullying. On top of all of that, Team BC4U and our good friends at AKO want to make the world a kinder and brighter place for everyone.

This year’s Anti-Bullying theme is a wonderful message of “One Kind Word” with the aim to remind us that kindness creates kindness and all it takes is just one kind word. This theme hopes to change the course of the conversations we have, creating positive communication with the people around us and naturally making it harder for bullying to occur in the first place.

The great thing about this theme is just how easy it is to take part in. We urge you to try it out with friends, family or colleagues. Tell someone that you like their shoes or hair, or thank them for their hard work. Offer to make them a nice cup of tea or simply ask “How are you?” Watch as you instantly create a positive environment where more kindness grows.

There’s other ways you can take part in this year’s campaign by showing support on social media to get the message out there and recruit more people on our quest for kindness. You can always check the official anti-bullying alliance for some more tips on how you can get stuck in and say no to bullying.

Don’t forget that Anna Kennedy Online has some amazing t-shirts with designs that will brighten anyone’s day. Wear yours with pride knowing you’ve supported a fantastic cause and helped a charity be able to continue on with their hard and much needed work. Click here to purchase yours.

You can also show your support of Harvey’s Law with the Uptheir x Harvey’s Law collection, a law that is hoping to prosecute online trolls and bullies. Click here for details.

So put Anti-Bullying Week in your calendar, from Monday 15th of November to Friday 19th and join us in spreading kindness and acceptance to everyone around us.

Autism Diagnosis delays are across the media once again. I have campaigned for many years on autism diagnosis, promises made however, very little action.

Anna Kennedy OBE Founder of autism services and her National Autism Charity was flooded with message across social media about wait times for an assessment for an autism diagnosis for their children. 

Parents are complaining of waiting between two and five years for a diagnosis for their child, and it is very much a “postcode lottery”,

Recently Anna read an article that in central London families were waiting over a year for just for a referral diagnosis, despite waiting time guidelines of three months. Anna share’s the Government has yet to complete past Health Secretaries vow to look at starting to officially record the figures.

Anna was told that their were complex reasons for the delays, including increased demand for the assessment which had increased “significantly” in the last few years due to wider awareness about autism.

More families may believe their children are on the spectrum due to charities like ours that are forging ahead to raise awareness and acceptance.

Anna shares the access to special needs services, which includes an educational psychologist’s report and a limited amount of free speech and language therapy on the NHS, appeared to be a “post code lottery.” 

Not all local authorities, health or education services provided equally strong support according to the parents she spoke to. Waiting a long time for a diagnosis meant a window for early intervention could be missed..

It has an impact on the child, it has an impact on the school, which doesn’t know what they are dealing with. It has an impact on the siblings, and obviously the family.” While some parents Anna has spoken to did avoid seeking a “label”, others told Anna of being dismissed.

This has got to change, we cannot go on like this.

Anna Kennedy OBE

Many autistic children are going back to school this week. Anna Kennedy OBE founder of a national autism charity has been contacted by parents where their children are refusing to go to school because of bullying at such an early stage of this academic year.

Anna shared: “Schools must take action so that children diagnosed with an autism spectrum condition feel safe in lessons and at break times. Autistic children are seen by their parents and carers as vulnerable to bullying. ‘Give us a Break’ is Anna Kennedy online anti bullying campaign. She calls on all schools and colleges to be particularly aware of the bullying that autistic students experience at break times and to provide positive activities that keep them safe.

Many autistic students need ‘structured activities’ which are currently seriously lacking at break times in schools. Many parents and carers said they would embrace positive activities as a constructive way of combating the bullying of their children.

For autistic children and young people, break and lunch times in schools and colleges can be particularly daunting and can put them at risk of bullying. Anna Kennedy Online the UK Charity is to continue raise awareness of bullying of children with autism in schools and colleges.”

Anna shared: “Too often these children are seen as the problem; as not ‘fitting in’ or ‘settling down.’ We want to see all schools take decisive action to create environments and cultures where all children feel safe, accepted and supported without fear of bullying.

Autistic children should not be allowed to coast along without appropriate support until anxieties become so great that it leads to challenging behaviour both at home and school. Training, awareness and acceptance is key”.
