the young barnett foundation delivery

Project Outcomes:

Prior to the programme 32% of students answered with either “agree” or “strongly agree” to the statement “I am aware of how to prevent the spread of extremist disinformation online” . This proportion of students subsequently rose to 75% post-programme.

The percentage of students who “agreed” or “strongly agreed” with the statement “If I am not sure whether statements made in an online post are true, I try to verify them, for example by searching the internet” increased from 57% to 75% following their participation in the programme.

The percentage of students who either “agreed” or “strongly agreed” with the statement “I am aware of the problem of hate speech on social media” increased to 86.9% from 72.5% following the delivery of SOUK’s Media Literacy programme.

“It has been great working with the SOUK team. They know their stuff and keen to engage with young people of all ages and are not afraid to discuss things that need to be said. Their team are knowledgeable and relatable to the groups present to and feel more of their work needs to be seen across schools and colleges.” – Neil Taylor, Head of Community Services
