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 bullying and other forms of violence.
Chaired by Former Chief Justice of the Family Court of Australia, The Hon. Alastair Nicholson AO RFD QC, NCAB plays an important role in speaking out for children and advocating for their right to be free from bullying.
Established in 2002, NCAB’s 25 members include some of Australia’s leading experts in the field of bullying and cyberbullying – including psychologists, academics, researchers and educators.
