YouthLink Scotland – the national agency for youth work – has been funded by the Scottish
Government to understand the impact of digital youth work as a route to building cyber resilience
among young people, youth workers and youth work organisations.

By staying safe online we mean the critical awareness and behaviours to keep young people
safe from such threats as cyber bullying or grooming; by cyber resilience, we mean the
critical awareness, and the practical knowledge and skills, to secure personal accounts,
devices and to spot potential threats and scams.
Digital youth work includes: youth work delivered digitally (e.g., online gatherings), youth
work focussed on a digital activity (e.g., coding or gaming clubs), or youth work covering
digital content (e.g., employability, cyber resilience, staying safe online).

We are asking you to complete this short survey, which should take around 5 - 10 minutes.

We would like to hear from you whether or not you are involved in digital youth work.
