The National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence is Australia’s key bullying prevention event for young people. Take the stand now and unite against bullying and violence.
Bullying is not okay no matter what Section of our Movement you belong to. As Scouts, we support one another, we learn, we are active and we explore. As we do this, we enjoy the many friendships we make in the world wide Movement that is Scouting.
As a youth organisation Scouts Australia believes that bullying needs to be addressed at a policy level and at a program and youth enactment level. We provide elearning training as well as the website breakingthecycle.scouts.com.au to build an understanding of bullying and provide strategies needed to address the issue.
Scouts Australia has a zero tolerance of bullying. We do not condone any form of bulling or harassment in any section or between any individuals or groups of individuals
On Friday the 15th of March Scouts Australia will be spreading the messages of the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence which is promoted by Bullying.

Take action every day.” For resources, including social media posts, web banners, information, games and apps head to bullyingnoway.gov.au.
