The Office of the Children’s eSafety Commissioner leads online safety education for the Australian Government and protects Australian children when they experience cyberbullying by administering a complaints scheme. The Office also deals with complaints about prohibited online content.
The Telstra Foundation has partnered with The Alannah and Madeline Foundation to offer eSmart Libraries to Australia's 1500 public libraries. Its cyber safety program has been designed to better equip local libraries with the skills needed for a smart, safe and responsible online community. This partnership is giving more Australians the opportunity to benefit from new communications technologies while making the online library experience safer for everyone.
Australia's youth-driven anti-bullying and leadership organisation empowers young people to stand up and lead change – in school, online and beyond. Since 2006, PROJECT ROCKIT has worked with over 100,000 young people in interactive face-to-face workshops. In partnership with the Telstra Foundation, PROJECT ROCKIT plans to launch a digital classroom, which backed by a social media campaign and an app, the project will also provide students with a useful 24/7 'pocket guide' for managing bullying issues.

Through research, resources, events and special projects, FOSI promotes a culture of responsibility and encourages a sense of digital citizenship for all.
From 2011 to 2016 the Young and Well Cooperative Research Centre united young people with researchers, practitioners and policy makers to explore the role of technology in young people's lives, and how it can be used to improve their mental health and well-being. There are still a number of exciting ongoing projects which you can read more about here.
