Internet Matters launches new new cyberbullying campaign
The cyberbullying campaign provides tips and advice in partnership with the Anti-Bullying Alliance
Internet Matters, an online e-safety portal backed by the four main Internet Service Providers (BT, Sky, TalkTalk and Virgin Media) as well as the BBC and Google, launched yesterday a new cyberbullying campaign in partnership with the Anti-Bullying Alliance.
This cyberbullying campaign includes a video to highlight the nature of bullying in the digital age, as well as a new resource centre for parents with information and guidance on how to deal with the issue.
As part of the campaign, Internet Matters has three videos of the impacts and experience of cyberbullying. Vic Goddard, a head teacher from 'Educating Essex', mum-of-two Adele Jennings on what to do if your child is being cyberbullied, and mum-of-three Nicola Jenkins who found out that her daughter had been cyberbullying someone in her class.
New research from Internet Matters of 1,500 parents (with children aged 6-16) has shown that cyberbullying is one of the top concerns for parents. 62% of parents have admitted it was a worry however 32% were yet to talk to their children about cyberbullying.
