It's time to end online abuse
We’re Glitch – a UK charity that wants to make the Internet a safer place for everyone. Through campaigns, advocacy and impactful educational programmes, our aim is to transform the narrative around online abuse and highlight its disproportionate impact on women and girls. But we can’t do it alone. Read on to find out how you can get behind our cause.
Using campaigns and collaborations with partners—including universities, corporates and other charities—we work hard to highlight the problem of online abuse. You might also see us on TV, podcasts or on stage, speaking up about the impact it has on individuals and society, as well as some possible solutions to tackle it.
We see ourselves as a ‘critical friend’ of the powerful forces in tech, law enforcement and privacy. This means working closely with the major social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook and TikTok—so we can influence their policies and hold them to account when needed—as well as helping public institutions create better legislation to prevent and address online abuse.
We want everyone to feel confident when navigating online and offline spaces – especially women and girls, who are disproportionately affected by discrimination. Through our educational work, we promote the concept of 'digital citizenship’ and break down complex topics including online hate speech, gender-based abuse and information disorders.
