Ask Sam

Anti-bullying week is from 13th - 17th November and I know that bullying affects a lot of people.

Over the next few weeks I'll be answering letters on bullying and giving advice on how to cope with it.

Ask me a question

You can ask me about anything you want, there's nothing too big or small.

Write me a letter

What you need to know:

  • Sam reads every letter, but can only respond to a few each week
  • Sam's replies are public, never private, so others can read them
  • Sam will remove personal info from your letter to keep it anonymous
  • if yours is chosen, you'll see it under one of the topics below
  • if you need support now or want to talk privately, contact a counsellor for free on 0800 1111.
