Children's views on the recommendations of the Family Justice Review Panel, 2011.
Alcohol marketing on the internet is growing rapidly, with the alcohol industry utilizing a range of new and interactive techniques to reach existing and new customers. Of particular concern is the presence of alcohol companies on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, and video sharing sites such as YouTube, given that huge numbers of children and young people use these sites on a regular basis, and are consequently at risk of exposure to marketing intended for adults.
Research that has been undertaken as part of the European Digital Youth Information Project (EDYIP), a networking project on the theme of online information for young people. The aim of the research is to provide insights into the issues that young people face when searching for online information in order to inform the development of good practice on how best to reach young people through the internet.

Last year, half of all young people going into care were over 10 years old. Many of these young people end up in care because relationships at home have fallen apart. Other young people remain at home but in family situations that are close to breaking point. Others leave home, ending up ‘sofa surfing’ or in hostels. Some become involved in the criminal justice system as a result of their behaviour.
This report looks at ways to support families to keep young people out of care and out of trouble.
Document that outlines 8 main findings and recommendations from the research ‘Munch, Poke, Ping’ which the Training and Development Agency (TDA) commissioned Stephen Carrick-Davies to undertake in 2011.

This report presents findings of a mixed-method study exploring how alcohol is represented in media consumed by young people, young people’s own interpretations of these representations, and the influence of the media and celebrities on young people’s attitudes to alcohol and their alcohol consumption. It also examines the views of media professionals on the production of alcohol-related content, the potential influence of the media on young consumers, and the role of the media in health promotion. Report published by the Joseph Rowntree foundation in September 2011.
