Bullying can affect people of all ages and as a Club we endeavour to ensure it doesn't happen in our Club. But what is bullying? The Anti-Bullying Alliance defines it as "the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. It can happen face to face or online".
