The GAA/LGFA/Camogie/Handball/Rounders became the country’s first sporting organisations to launch a national anti-bullying campaign with the unveiling of the Tackling Bullying Programme in March 2013.

Tackling Bullying is a new training resource that has beendeveloped in response to a growing awareness of the impact of bullying in society and particularly in sport.

The programme consists of a two-hour training workshop suitable for Coaches, Parents, Players and other Club personnel and also includes a range of publicity materials for Clubs.

The two-hour programme may be run in tandem and complimentary to any other educational and or community anti-bullying initiatives and is suitable for delivery at both adult and under age levels.

In recognition of the serious difficulties that bullying presents in sports organisations, this resource will be presented by the organisation to the Irish Sports Council so as to enable them facilitate other sports organisations who may wish to see the programme delivered in their own sports organisations.
