Bullying prevention – community grants

The 10th National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence is on Friday 20 March 2020.

The theme is ‘Take action together’.

In South Australia, this means taking a community approach to bullying prevention within the school gates and beyond.

To celebrate the 10 year anniversary, the Department for Education is providing grants to community organisations to promote bullying prevention for children and young people in community settings.

The grants give your community organisation the opportunity to:

  • promote bullying prevention initiatives
  • raise awareness of how to prevent and respond to bullying
  • showcase your organisation’s bullying prevention work
  • highlight steps your organisation takes to create an inclusive environment where children and young people are safe from bullying
  • share how your organisation takes action and empowers children and young people, families and the community to be part of the solution
  • send a clear message that bullying is not accepted within your organisation and community.

Grants of up to $5000

Up to $5,000 is available to community organisations providing services to children and young people to:

  • promote your organisation’s bullying prevention initiatives
  • further develop your organisation’s capacity to prevent and respond to bullying 
  • promote a community approach to bullying prevention.
