About The Cyber-bullying Taskforce
The Royal Foundation Taskforce on the Prevention of Cyberbullying was established by The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry to work with the technology industry to develop a series of commitments to help prevent the cyberbullying of children and young people, together with the guidance and expertise of charities, not-for-profit organisations and independent advisors.
The Taskforce launched in May 2016 to develop an industry-wide response to the online bullying of young people.
About the Stop, Speak, Support campaign
As part of The Royal Foundationâ€™s Taskforce on the Prevention of Cyberbullying, a panel of young people have developed a campaign to encourage other young people to take three simple steps when you see bullying online.
The Stop, Speak, Support campaign has been created in response to 11-16 year olds saying that while they enjoy social media, games and online forums, that it is the only area of their lives that they feel does not have clear expectations or standards of behaviour they should all adhere to.
Stop, Speak, Support aims to help young people spot cyberbullying and know what steps they can take to stop it happening and provide support to the person being bullied.
The Stop, Speak, Support steps were created in partnership with a panel of young people through a series of focus groups and workshops.
