Gok’s charity of the month for April: Ditch The Label

Ditch The LabelHello my darlings! The clocks have rolled forward and summer feels closer than ever! This month I am supporting a great charity – Ditch The Label. This wonderful charity has one main message which I fully support – “It doesn’t matter if you’re white, black, gay, straight, asexual, disabled, skinny, curvy, old, young, interested in sports, work in a salon or feel good in drag – we think that you are amazing”. I think that says it all!

Please check out their work and support them any way you can. Their anti-bullying survey report is out on 16th April so keep your eyes peeled for the results.

Loads of love xx

Ditch the Label are one of the UK’s largest and most ambitious anti-bullying charities. Their award-winning work spans across the UK with schools, colleges, young people, parents and organisations towards their objective of helping to combat bullying and to promote the importance of equality and diversity.


  • We provide pioneering digital advice, support and training for young people through our website and strategic partnerships with key online communities such as Habbo Hotel, The Student Rooms and Twitter.
  • We produce pioneering research designed to explore the complex and changing nature of bullying and the wider impact that it has upon the mental, emotional and physical health of young people.
  • We provide training to teachers, safeguarding professionals, parents and guardians and other adults involved with young people to share our best practises to help them tackle issues relating to bullying without regurgitating old, dull and ineffective strategies.
  • We run public awareness campaigns to help shape and change societal attitudes surrounding equality and diversity. Recent campaigns have focused on mental health stigmas, appearance based bullying and a movement away from the villainisation of bullies.
  • Working with celebrities, influencers and inspirational people – we provide a platform for others to share advice, stories and experiences for the benefit of those who are currently impacted by bullying.
  • 45% of young people who experience bullying suffer in silence. We strategically work with other people and organisations to vary the touch points that we have with young people to make our support systems more accessible and natural. In the past, we have collaborated with celebrities, YouTubers, blockbuster movies, fashion designers, music festivals and on one occasion – a sausage dog called Albus.
