Owls behind Anti-Bullying Week

16 November 2022

The Owls Community Programme has been busy this week promoting Anti-Bullying Week across the city.

The team have been delivering inclusivity workshops in both primary and secondary schools to spread the message that any form is bullying is simply not acceptable.

The Community Programme also hosted a Premier League Kicks football tournament to break down barriers facing communities and to encourage communication between young people from various regions of South Yorkshire.


Inclusion Officer Paul Hebda put on a workshop highlighting the difference between banter and bullying. One young person said: "It's something you don't really think about, you think you're just having a laugh but sometimes you don't know what the other person is thinking. It's fine to have a joke now and again, but it's not when it goes too far."

Hull City and Leeds United also attended the seven-a-side tournament and all participants integrated with our local PL attendees to play some entertaining football!

Youth Integration Coordinator, Jake Spriggs-Moore, added: “I am extremely proud of what has been achieved today, the fact that we have young people representing different communities of South Yorkshire coming and playing together is fantastic. It showcases that sport is a great way to unite young people together.”
