PCC - Amendment to Decision - Commissioning of Phase 3 Social Switch Project – Safer Digital Access for young people

There is currently a great deal of media publicity and topical debate related to school-based harassment, bullying and the pressures faced by the native digital generation impacting on mental health and resilience. Schools are well placed to support young people to use technology safely but given the 24/7 nature of digital communications cannot do so efficiently in isolation. There is a call for GM school to access staff for training and programme for their young person in tandem with effective parental engagement and a whole community approach to online protocols.

The GM VRU invited expressions of interest and requested quotes via the network of extended partners connected to the four VRU delivery strands between May – July 2022.
