Take part in the annual Cybersurvey

Cybersurvey 2019 is free and national

2019 Cybersurvey

The national Cybersurvey 2019 is now open for schools to sign up to take part. This year, in partnership with Internet Matters we are taking the Cybersurvey national so that schools anywhere in the UK can gain vital insights into young people’s online experiences. The Cybersurvey has been run by Youthworks for 10 years, yielding rich and up to date information that we all need to understand the online lives of children and young people.

The survey is free to schools, colleges and alternative provision and will run from October 7th for 6 weeks. Schools and students are anonymous. To find out more and to sign up, please visit www.thecybersurvey.co.uk where you can see past reports, frequently asked questions and a sign-up form.

Adrienne Katz, Director of Youthworks who leads the Cybersurvey, explained how it has highlighted issues of concern which have helped schools and local authority services put their efforts and resources into addressing key issues. For example, our work with Kingston University has revealed the needs of vulnerable children and those with additional needs, not currently addressed by generic online safety advice and support. Some local authorities have used Cybersurvey results to determine priorities such as tackling the online lives of young carers.

In previous years, the survey has revealed the increase in visits to websites with violent videos or images, extremist content and pro-self-harm sites. However, more positively, it has also revealed a decrease in the use of chatrooms and meeting up with someone known online.

This year the Cybersurvey will explore mental wellbeing among other offline vulnerabilities.

Schools will receive the final report in March 2020 along with resources to use in school.
