About the webinar:
Young people who are vulnerable offline experience the online world as both a refuge and a risk. They turn to it as an escape, for support and connection to others. It opens up new possibilities for them and offers a space in which they can be free of labels such as ‘disabled’ or ‘in care’. Yet some of them are significantly more at risk of harm online. This webinar will explore this growing disparity with research messages from young people and practical ideas about intervention, online safety education and professional training. The data is from almost 15,000 young people’s responses to the annual Cybersurvey conducted in the UK.
