Stop abuse online

Can we keep in touch?

We are working with More United, Centenary Action Group, and the Women's Institute on a campaign to eradicate online abuse.

Bullying and harassment on social media is having a devastating impact on the lives of many users. Our research with Opinium found that 1 in 4 people have suffered abuse online and a similar number (27%) say that fear of abuse has prevented them posting comments online. Two-thirds (61%) believe that social media companies are not doing enough to tackle abuse on their sites.

The #StopTheHate coalition is working cross-party to bring an end to abuse online. We're calling on the government to implement a number of reforms - through its upcoming Online Harms Bill - that would significantly reduce the incidences of abuse and increase the penalties on social media companies for allowing hate to spread on their sites.
