Online Harms Survey

Have you, or anyone you know been bullied, abused or threatened online? Do you worry about the effect social media is having on our children's mental health? Perhaps someone you know has a gambling addiction or spends too much time hooked on online gaming? Maybe you are worried that elections in the UK are at risk of infiltration by people who wish our country harm?

Whatever your concern may be, please watch this short video and complete the survey on this page. The Government and the opposition are determined to lead the world in making sure that being online in the UK is a safe place to be, free from intimidation - but also somewhere that freedom of speech can thrive.
