A news article from the BBC from last year highlighted the concerns of professionals working with young people becoming victims on online abuse: Teachers bullied by ‘hate sites‘
In the light of increasing concerns around this issue, The South West Grid for Learning, working with Childnet International, are in the process of establishing a helpline and web resources to support professionals dealing with this. They wish to better understand the prevalence of this problem and also the nature of incident and are working with the University of Plymouth to conduct a brief survey to collect experiences related to these issues. They are asking for professionals who work with children and young people to respond to the survey which comprises of 20 short questions and will take no more than 5 minutes to complete. All data collected is entirely anonymous and will be stored securely, accessible only by the researchers in this project.
If you have any questions about the nature or process of this survey, please contact Professor Andy Phippen firstname.lastname@example.org.
