Suitable for: Families with children of all ages

Around one in five children aged 10 to 15 years in England and Wales are victims of online bullying (also called cyberbullying). That’s 764,000 children affected.

Online or cyberbullying is when bullies use the internet or other technology to harass their victims. This can happen publicly for others to see, like on social media. And it can happen privately, for example, by emailing or texting.

Cyberbullying may include:

  • Sending mean or threatening comments
  • Sending inappropriate or sexual images, or asking for them
  • Spreading rumours online
  • Posting embarrassing images or videos without consent
  • Posting private information online without consent
  • Impersonating someone online or tampering with their profile
