Victim Commissioners Survey for Victims of Online Abuse

The Victims’ Commissioner has launched a new survey of victims of so-called ‘online harms’ in England and Wales.

The survey seeks to better understand the lived experience of victims of online abusive and harmful behaviours. It is open to all victims of any form of online abuse and harassment. It explores the prevalence of different types of online abuse, the impact these have on the victim, and the reporting behaviours of victims. The results and findings will be published on the Victims’ Commissioner’s website with a view to putting forward the victim perspective and informing public debate as the Online Safety Bill progresses through Parliament.

The survey is available on the Victims’ Commissioner’s website (closing date 20 February).
