New Round of the Cybersurvey, 2017 JPG

The Cybersurvey is a carefully developed online tool to explore the experiences and views of children and young people on their online lives. 

Core questions used since 2008 enable comparisons and modernised sections keep it up to date. 

This survey can give your service the local information you need to shape your practice.
We look at cyberbullying and the effectiveness of e-safety education, along with a wide range of other experiences online. We analyse by demographic factors and by vulnerable groups. Also explored are: mental and emotional health, whether cyberbullied, involved in sexting or meeting up.

Over 36,000 young people have participated. 


This information is vital for:

  • Local e-safety teams' practice and planning,
  • Training programmes 
  • Schools' internal e-safety programmes 
  • LSCBs
  • Care and residential settings
  • Counsellors, youthworkers and those supporting young people
  • Educational psychologists

Please contact us to enquire about your county, local authority area or academy chain undertaking this survey, or for the CPD accredited training programme. Costs are low. Past reports are below:
