Welcome to The Cyber Trust
Welcome to the Cyber Trust.
The Trust was founded in March 2017 as the opportunities and dangers of the digital revolution were becoming increasingly apparent. The vision of the Founders was to help children and vulnerable people access the digital world safely and securely and at the same time enjoy the benefits of the technology.
Initially our work focused on Gloucestershire with the support of the Police and Crime Commissioner, the Chief Constable and local schools and colleges. The style of the work comprised face-to-face interactive sessions with young people. Independent assessment indicated that the work was engaging and achieving its objectives.
After the launch the demands for support grew significantly and this has led the Trustees to pursue a different strategy but with the same objects.
Working collaboratively, they have decided to launch an app for use in schools in 2020. This is being designed initially to meet the needs of girls from the ages of 10 to 13, a period of transition for many.
Further apps will be developed for specific, vulnerable groups and tailored to meet their needs.
We have also assembled a list of useful resources and things to do around cyber and coding etc during the Covid19 crisis for pupils and parents whilst schools are closed.
We hope you will recognise the importance and value of this work. Please do not hesitate to make contact if you would like to collaborate with us or have particular views to offer.
