This research presents a clear picture of the challenges children face online. But I’m heartened to see on this Safer Internet Day just how many UK organisations are addressing these challenges and helping young people spot and discount misleading information.

We are playing our part in government, and are hard at work preparing our upcoming Media Literacy Strategy and Online Safety Bill which will equip young people with the skills to be safe online and put a new duty of care on online platforms to tackle dangerous disinformation.
