• Supporting learning and sharing best practice through membership
• Raising awareness of bullying through Anti-Bullying Week and other coordinated, shared campaigns
• Delivering programme work at a national and local level to help stop bullying and bring lasting change to children's lives

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."
