We all want young people to be healthy, happy and safe. However, there is growing concern in some communities about cyberbullying of young people. Cyberbullying is using technology to bully another person. It can hurt young people, their families and friends. It is also a complex problem that can be invisible and difficult to stop.
The Queensland Anti-Cyberbullying Taskforce needs your help to develop a framework for Queensland to help reduce cyberbullying of young people. They want to hear from parents, family members, carers, young people, community groups, health and wellbeing experts and people who work in our schools.
In particular, the Taskforce wants to hear about your ideas to:
• prevent or reduce cyberbullying
• support people affected by the cyberbullying of young people.
The Taskforce is chaired by Madonna King, and includes members with knowledge and expertise in education, youth health and wellbeing, law, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, disability and families.
How to have your say:
Email the Taskforce at firstname.lastname@example.org
Upload your ideas as a submission on the Taskforce website https://qld.gov.au/cyberbullyingtaskforce
Come to a public forum in 12 Queensland locations including Brisbane, Cairns, Rockhampton and Roma.

Everyone can be part of the stand against cyberbullying. Ms King and the Taskforce members look forward to hearing from you.
