The Anti-Bullying Alliance aims to bring organisations (including schools and the charity sector) and individuals together, united against bullying, to share and learn from each other. Our work is particularly focused on practice, policy and research in England, Northern Ireland and Wales.
We have created initiatives that help us achieve our aim. These initiatives include but are not limited to:
- A membership of organisations who state they align with our vision and values
- A whole-school programme for schools to develop their work and achieve ‘United Against Bullying’ school status. The United Against Bullying Award requires schools to provide evidence of the measures they have put in place to prevent and tackle bullying and their commitment to doing so. Find out more about the United Against Bullying programme terms of reference here.
- Sharing of case studies and examples from schools and other settings to help inspire and encourage learning
- A School Staff Award to mark Anti-Bullying Week: pupils nominate members of staff that have helped them most when worried about bullying
- Anti-Bullying Week Supporters: organisations and individuals to register their support for Anti-Bullying Week on our website
- Third party content housed on our website to external organisation’s resources and research
Those organisations and individuals taking part in Anti-Bullying Alliance initiatives or listed as third-party content on our website are not endorsed by the Anti-Bullying Alliance. We are not responsible for or endorsing their anti-bullying policy or practice nor do we suggest bullying does not take place within these organisations.
The ABA can in no way take responsibility for practice within schools that have provided case studies for our website or those that have received the United Against Bullying or Anti-Bullying Week School Staff Award, this will always remain the responsibility of the staff within the school community.
If you are concerned about any organisation listed on our site or taking part in our initiative, we first suggest speaking to said organisation in the first instance to relay your concerns and, should you still be unsatisfied, you can email [email protected].
