Northern Ireland Anti-Bullying Forum (NIABF) is the lead on anti-bullying policy and practice in Northern Ireland.  These new supplements have been created by NIABF and should be read in conjunction with Effective Responses to Bullying Behaviour.  The supplements will support schools when dealing with incidents of disablist bullying and dealing with incidents of bullying involving Looked After Children (LAC).
