The Anti-bullying Alliance is a coalition of organisations and individuals working together to stop bullying and create safe environments in which children and young people can live, grow, play and learn.
We welcome membership from any organisation or individual that supports this vision. ABA also supports a growing network of almost 1,000 schools and colleges across the country. The ABA coordinates Anti-Bullying Week each November and is the national voice for evidence-based practice in relation to the prevention of bullying between children and young people.
ABA defines bullying as the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. Bullying can be physical, verbal or psychological. It can happen face-to-face or through cyberspace.
We can provide expertise in relation to all forms of bullying between children and young people. We have experience in working with a vast range of clients including the government, youth charities, journalists, documentary makers, public services, schools and colleges, children’s homes, young offender institutes and businesses. If an expert member of our team is unable to assist, we can certainly put you in touch with someone who can.
Every year the Anti-Bullying Alliance coordinate national Anti-Bullying Week – a week during which children and young people, schools, parents and carers come together with one aim: to stop bullying for all.
This year we are calling on the school community to take action to stop the bullying of ALL children and young people – including disabled children and those with special educational needs, who are significantly more likely to experience bullying in schools and the wider community.
Please support the Anti-Bullying Alliance during Anti-Bullying Week 2014 by fundraising for us or by making a donation. Every penny helps us to work with our members to stop bullying between children and young people and create safe environments where children can live, grow, play and learn.
The Anti-Bullying Alliance was established by the NSPCC and NCB in 2002 and is hosted by leading children’s charity, the National Children’s Bureau.
