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 over 400 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 advice and 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
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.
