Anti-Bullying Alliance: creating safer environments for children and young people

Anti-Bullying Alliance (ABA) is a unique coalition of organisations and individuals working together to achieve their vision to stop bullying and create safer environments in which children and young people can live, grow, play and learn.
Logo: Anti-Bullying Alliance

The alliance was established by the NSPCC and the National Children’s Bureau in 2002. It shares best practices through membership and raises awareness of bullying through the Anti-Bullying Week and other campaigns.

ABA’s objectives are:

  • to maintain the high profile of the problem of childhood bullying, the impact it has and increasing the evidence base for tackling it;
  • to provide a climate in which stakeholders are committed to and proactively working towards preventing and responding to bullying of all children and young people;
  • to provide school leaders, teachers, youth practitioners, parents, children and young people with evidence-based skills and knowledge to address bullying effectively.


ABA runs the United Against Bullying programme, and several other programmes that are focused on specific aspects of bullying behaviour. It also offers a free online training course on anti-bullying.
