About Us

The Anti-Bullying Network was established at the University of Edinburgh in 1999 with funding from the Scottish Executive to provide free anti-bullying support to school communities. In the first eight years that it operated on this basis, the Network gained a national reputation for the high quality of the services it provided to school communities.

The Anti-Bullying Network is now an independent operation with the following objectives:

  • to support anti-bullying work in schools;
  • to provide a free website;
  • and to offer an anti-bullying service which will include the provision of training, publications and consultancy services.
