Nobility Care Australia recognises the right of all participants to feel safe and to live in an environment that provides protection from assault, neglect, exploitation, discrimination or any other form of abuse. People with disabilities, children and young people are some of the most vulnerable groups in our society. It’s essential that Nobility Care Australia identify, consult and respond to instances where persons with disabilities, children or young persons are at risk of significant harm.

Bullying is also defined as a systematic or repetitive abuse of power with an objective to intentionally cause psychological harm. Bullying then may take various forms, including verbal, physical, and social abuse. Bullying can occur at any time and place.
One of my biggest concerns as a parent, as I’m sure many of you are, is discovering that my children are being bullied or are bullies themselves. I sometimes ponder on how we would react if one of these scenarios were discovered.
In a society where bullying may take various forms, it worries me that not enough parents, guardians, relatives, and friends would know what to do in the best interests of their children.
Well, we should do the right thing and spread awareness about these issues and concerns. We must report the bullying and abuse when it starts so that we can end it there, if left growing then it can become a big hurdle in our life which will not let us grow.
Choice is ours now…
