Thank you for registering for Anti-Bullying Week 2017!  ABW17 takes place between 13-17 November and this year’s theme is “All Equal, All Different, All Together”.  So we’ll be encouraging children, young people and others to ask how they create inclusive, kind, respectful and diverse environments to welcome and accept difference and to tackle bullying behaviours.

As in previous years, NIABF has prepared a range of resources to support you in communicating key anti-bullying messages to the children and young people you work with. All these resources are listed below. To download the resource, simply click on the highlighted title and save to your computer.
