Youthlink Scotland is developing resources around cyber resilience to help people think about and protect themselves from risks online.

They want to hear from organisations to inform the development of the resources. The resources are being created to guide the building of conversations and learning opportunities about cyber resilience into youth work, adult learning, community work, support work and more. They will help non-formal learning practitioners to support communities, learners and young people they work with have a stronger understanding of cyber resilient behaviour.

The views of practitioners and learners, including community organisation, are being sought to inform the resources – fill in the survey by
Friday 25 January.

This study will determine whether or not mobile abattoirs would be viable in Scotland by providing detailed research of all aspects of what would be required, including the impact mobile abattoirs would have on the viability of existing processing facilities and supply chains.
