Join us for our report launch event, including a panel discussion on the findings of our research and an evening of networking.
Children’s media is rightly in the spotlight at the moment.
The Government has set up a fund to promote new and innovative content and the media regulator Ofcom has asked the commercial public service broadcasters to improve their offer to children.
In our new report The Challenge of Children’s TV – How to engage the YouTube generation with the wider world, we focus on one aspect of children’s television that concerns us: content about the wider world. Our goal is that children in the UK grow up with access to media which informs and engages them with the wider world.
