Developing strategies and exploring the power we have within ourselves and as a community to both stop abuse and build true relationships
In our first Community Event we discussed cyber-bullying it's affects, the concerns many have in the community and we drew on each other’s knowledge and experiences to discuss how it is, and the impact it incurs. Whether you have received cyber-bullying or in some way perpetrated it, we are all experts through our collective experiences and all play a part in building a way forward.
"This is an issue affecting so many and we need to not turn a blind eye to it” ~ Parent
"There was so much discussion and support from everyone that I can take away and put to use” ~ High School Student
"I came out feeling like I could make a difference” ~ High School Student
The forum worked through three main areas in addressing Cyberbullying:
Local Students, Parents, Business and Council representatives and general community members all attended.
Community discussion groups met prior to the forum to bring ideas and presentations on the day.
Further follow up events will follow. To be notified be sure to join our mailing list.

Through connecting with each other, we form a new way of addressing cyber-bullying and the deeper issues within society that it raises.
