We are subject specialists and are recognised globally as leading experts in our field. Our research and analytical skills have been honed through decades working at the cutting edge of digital safety policy. As trusted partners, we help clients to unpick and solve knotty problems. In everything we do, we seek to be catalysts for positive change.
Evidence and data are foundational to everything we do. We design and deliver in-depth participatory research with children, parents and carers and experts in the UK and worldwide. Our in-house capabilities and close relationships with academic researchers across the globe ensure our work reflects the most credible and up to date thinking.
Safety by Design
We develop product and policy solutions that meaningfully enhance teens’ safety and wellbeing online including creating safety and wellbeing tools; reviewing platform guidelines policies; delivering training to designers and engineers; and aligning teens’ access to content, features and functionalities with age-appropriate design principles.
The UK’s Online Safety Act 2023 (as it will soon be), Ireland’s Online Safety and Media Regulations Act 2023 and the EU’s Digital Services Act create significant new responsibilities for digital services especially in relation to child users. These responsibilities include detailed risk assessments, age assurance, user reporting systems, preventing access to illegal and harmful content and transparency reports. We work with regulated services, law firms and regulators themselves to consider standards and develop best practice compliance solutions that can (where possible) be implemented across the differing regulatory frameworks.
Public policy and future thinking
The global debate on digital policy moves at lightning speed and is prone to tectonic shifts in priorities and focus. We help clients make sense of the debate and the implications for their organisation. Our experts are globally recognised thought leaders and we also work with governments, regulators and NGOs to shape future thinking on key policy issues.
