Anti-Cyberbullying Taskforce

As part of our zero tolerance for bullying and cyberbullying and commitment to ensuring the safety, health and happiness of all young Queenslanders we’ve established Queensland’s Anti-Cyberbullying Taskforce.

The Queensland Anti-Cyberbullying Taskforce was established on 19 February 2018. It brings together people with a wide range of knowledge and expertise to develop proposals for Queensland to address the complex and pervasive issue of cyberbullying.


The role of the Taskforce

The role of the Taskforce is to develop an anti-cyberbullying framework for Queensland and advise the government about the development of programs under the new framework. The framework will cover cyberbullying affecting young people in Queensland.

The Taskforce will engage with children, parents, schools, communities and experts to draw upon best practice research and identify community driven strategies and initiatives that address the complex causes of bullying and cyberbullying.


Taskforce meetings

The Taskforce met on Friday 16 March, the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence. Among the topics and issues discussed was the invitation for submissions, plans for consultations and the Taskforce confirming its focus on cyberbullying of children and young people up to the age of 25.


Public forums

The Queensland Anti-Cyberbullying Taskforce is hosting public consultation forums at locations across Queensland to hear your ideas to:

  • prevent or reduce cyberbullying of young people
  • support people affected by the cyberbullying of young people.

Parents and other members of the public are welcome to attend the forums listed. Venue details will be updated as information becomes available. Click here to learn more.
