Thank you for showing an interest in participating in an interview. This research is being carried out by the University of Suffolk in collaboration with South West Grid for Learning (SWGfL) and Internet Matters.

The research aims to explore the perceived effectiveness, accessibility and potential impact of Index of Online Harms resources for parents and professionals caring for or working with young people aged 4-18 who identify as LGBTQ+, are children in care or living with SEND. If you are a parent, guardian or professional working with children who have SEND, are in care or identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community, we would like to hear from you.
