The National Centre Against Bullying (NCAB) is a peak body working to advise and inform the Australian community on the issue of childhood bullying and the creation of safe schools and communities, including the issue of cybersafety.
NCAB is made up of a number of experts and works closely with school communities, governments and industry. It plays an important role in speaking out for children and advocating for their right to be free from violence.
Basing its position on the Kandersteg Declaration against Bullying in Children and Youth 2007, NCAB holds that governments, communities, organisations, schools and individuals must take action.
Some of the nation's pre-eminent legal, law enforcement and educational experts will meet in Melbourne on 18-19 July 2013 to address the issue at the Bullying, Young People and the Law Symposium - the first of its kind in Australia.
The symposium is a joint initiative between the National Centre Against Bullying (NCAB), the Australian Federal Police and the Sir Zelman Cowen Centre, part of the Victoria University.
