ICPA Qld Submission to Anti-Cyberbullying Taskforce 2018

The Queensland Anti‑Cyberbullying Taskforce (the 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 Queensland Anti‑Cyberbullying Taskforce provided its report Adjust our Settings: A community approach to address cyberbullying among children and young people in Queensland to the Queensland Government on 14 September 2018.

The Taskforce’s report made 29 recommendations to address cyberbullying through a community-wide approach, with actions focused on parents and carers, the community, schools and government. At the centre of the Taskforce’s report and recommendations are children and young people.

The Taskforce undertook extensive consultation in developing its report and recommendations. The Taskforce held 59 consultation events across Queensland with approximately 650 attendees, and received a total of 364 written submissions.
