The Children's Society inquiry into Cyber Bullying?

What do the Young People you work with think about cyber bullying?

The Children’s Society is running an inquiry, in collaboration with YoungMinds and Alex Chalk, MP for Cheltenham, focussing on the impact of cyberbullying on children and young people’s mental health. As well as assessing its impact, the inquiry will examine the steps social media companies are taking to tackle such behaviour on their platforms, and whether the industry is going far enough to protect children and young people on their sites.

The inquiry will be chaired by Alex Chalk MP, and will be made up of a cross-party group of MPs and Peers. There will also be two expert panellists, John Carr OBE and well-known social media influencer Grace Victory.

Young people’s survey:

To ensure that the voices of young people are central to the inquiry, The Children’s Society and YoungMinds are carrying out a survey on behalf of Alex Chalk MP to hear about the experiences and views of young people aged 11-25 years old. An analysis of the results will then be used to inform the lines of inquiry.

The survey will be open until Monday 17th April and the link is available here:
