Being Jess

Jess gets bullied about her packed lunch and her second hand clothes.

Literally no-one wants to hang out with her.

School is tough and lonely and her mum just doesn't get it!!

But online it's different...

Online, she meets Ashley.

Being Jess is a new, accessible digital project for young people aged 9+ about online safety and identity,

made with and for young people


coming soon

So... what do you think?

Should Jess stay away, or meet up with Ashley?

Here's some very useful advice about the social media and how to stay safe on SnapChat, Instagram, etc… please have a look:

If you are worried about yourself or another young person, you can get help here (there is an email address, phone number, SignVideo and online options):


If you need to talk to a professional adult you can contact Childline (they have different contact options including sign video, email and online chat)

Send us your work! Email it to, or if the file is too big to attach to an email, use

Always ask an adult's permission and to help you send a file.
