Much has been written during, and since, the COVID-19 pandemic about how best to engage people in general in online settings. But less has been written specifically about young people facing disadvantage. Research conducted in 2021 by Catch22 identified four ‘conditions’ required to effectively engage online young people who face disadvantage.
Further research in 2022, funded by the Avast Foundation, allowed us to build these out into five principles. To illustrate these principles, we collated concrete examples and case studies from other organisations, as well as our own testing and learning with young people
In this workshop, delivered by Researcher, Katherine Oliver, we launched a new guide, designed for anyone delivering online programmes and services to young people facing disadvantage – whether these programmes / services take place partially or fully online.
