The Anti-Bullying Alliance (ABA) was founded by NSPCC and National Children’s Bureau in 2002. It is hosted and supported by NCB. The Alliance brings together over 50 organisations into one network with the aim of reducing bullying and creating safer environments.
The network’s aim is to provide information about how bullying can be tackled. It does not offer an advice or counselling service. It has the following objectives: to support anti-bullying work in schools; to operate a website; to research and develop effective strategies to address the verbal, psychological and physical harassment and violence called bullying; to promote research into bullying and support work seeking to reduce bullying; and to operate an anti-bullying service which will include the provision of training, publications and consultancy services.

Bullying UK is the new name for the award-winning charity Bullying Online, which was founded in 1999 by journalist Liz Carnell from Harrogate and her son John, as a direct result of their experience of dealing with school bullying. The charity gives practical information and advice to young people and their parents through the website and by email.
CyberMentors is a Beatbullying project – a web site for all young people affected by bullying and uses social networking to allow young people at different levels to mentor each other. Young people who have been bullied through digital channels, such as mobile phones and social networking sites can seek advice from a pool of 700 young ‘CyberMentors’. They can talk to a highly-trained young CyberMentor and get help straightaway. Young CyberMentors are 600 secondary school pupils and 100 young people in further education that have gone through a five-stage training programme. The CyberMentors are in turn mentored by Senior CyberMentors, who are trained adult volunteers, mostly from universities and colleges across the UK. They, in turn, are mentored by experienced Counsellors and Development Officers.
