Odd Socks Day isn't just for schools and children. Anyone can take part at home, in school, in the community or at work. For Odd Socks Day 2023 we have created a Workplace Pack that contains everything you need to make it happen in your workplace.
Each year, millions of people don their odd socks to raise awareness of bullying across the UK! 100s of workplaces take part along with some incredible celebrities including Ant and Dec, Emma Willis, Craig David, Annemarie and Sir Mo Farah.
Odd Socks Day 2023 took place on Monday 13th November to mark the start of Anti-Bullying Week 2023.
Here’s what you could do for 2023:
- Ask your company to wear odd socks to work (even if it’s working from home!)
- Donate £1 to help the Anti-Bullying Alliance carry on our important work
- If you want to, you can share a photo online using #OddSocksDay and #AntiBullyingWeek and tag @abaonline
