about bully zero
Bully Zero is the leading and most influential anti-bullying and cyberbullying organisation for children, teens and adults in Australia. We work to reduce and prevent bullying, cyberbullying, and other forms of digital abuse in schools, workplaces, online and in communities across our country.
We focus on preventing bullying by creating environments where everyone can thrive. We develop and deliver programs and initiatives that promote civility, inclusion and equality. Our workshops provide participants with effective solutions on how to respond to all forms of bullying, in the workplace, at school and online.
Some victims of bullying are so tormented that suicide has become their only option. Allem Halkic, was one such victim who at the tender age of seventeen, took his own life after being harassed online. Allem’s tragic story, amongst others, was the catalyst to launching Bully Zero in 2013.
Over the last six years, we have delivered programs to more than 1,000 schools, workplaces and community groups and engaged with over 300,000 parents, teachers and students across the country.
Equipped with the desire to make a difference, a group of passionate individuals joined forces in 2012 to create Bully Zero.
In 2009, prior to forming Bully Zero, Ali Halkic’s son Allem tragically fell victim to cyber-bullying. Through the determination of not wanting the same fate for another child, Ali successfully lobbied the Victorian State Government in erecting barriers along the Westgate Bridge in Melbourne—preventing hundreds of suicides as a result. Ali’s determinationfor change is carried through in his work as director of Bully Zero.
To this day, Bully Zero is the only bullying prevention organisation in Australia that deliversface-to-face programs by qualified teachers. These programs include cyber safety and bullying prevention programs that are delivered nationwideto schools, community groups, sporting clubs and workplaces. Bully Zero has delivered these programs to over 300,000 parents, children and teachers, received endorsements by the Office of the eSafety Commissioner and WorkSafe Victoria.
