United Against Bullying (UAB) Programme
United Against Bullying (UAB) is the Anti-Bullying Alliance's new whole-school anti-bullying programme.
What is the United Against Bullying Programme?
The United Against Bullying programme is the Anti-Bullying Alliance’s new whole-school anti-bullying programme. It supports schools to reduce bullying and improve the wellbeing of all children, focusing on those most at risk, including children and young people with SEND, children and young people who experience racist and faith-targeted bullying, sexual bullying, homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying, looked-after children, young carers and those on free school meals.
