Cyberbullying
 
Bullying has been around forever but cyberbullying is new. Before everyone had phones and the internet, teenagers who were bullied at school could leave their tormentors behind at the end of the day. Cyberbullying can follow you home and continue even when you’re alone in your bedroom. Shockingly, children’s charity the NSPCC says it has recorded an 88 per cent increase in calls about cyberbullying in the past five years – and usually it is a continuation of either physical or face-to-face emotional bullying.
 
Evidence Based Practice
 
The Centre was set up to contribute to the work of building and developing effective services for children and families by applying insights and practical tools from the emerging field of implementation science and practice.

Implementation Research
 
Implementation Science is an open access, peer-reviewed online journal that aims to publish research relevant to the scientific study of methods to promote the uptake of research findings into routine healthcare in clinical, organisational or policy contexts.
 
Internet awareness & safety
 

It can be hard to keep track of what your child is doing on social networks, apps and games. Or know how to keep them safe. That's why the NSPCC has teamed up with O2 to help parents untangle the web and teach their children to be Share Aware. Because, just like in real life, kids need your help to stay safe online.
