An App created for children and young people
Why an App?
The app is also aiming to be a support function for schools as a complement to their own value-based work. With the help of an external support channel like Fight Back, we hope to be able to help schools in their work against bullying.

Questions & Answers
why an app?
The amount of young people using the internet for more than three hours a day has more than doubled in just over a decade (quadrupled among 9-12 years old), and in just six years, the usage among the younger ones increased by 12 times. Depreciated by age groups and gender, the proportion of high consumers may be even bigger, eg 76% of 15-year-old girls use the mobile phone for more than 3 hours / day and 79% of 18-year-old boys use the internet for more than 3 hours / day.
With the smart phones and the breakthrough of the mobile Internet access, the terms and conditions have changed fundamentally. Today you do not have a phone in your pocket. Now you carry a computer, a tv, a radio, a game console and large parts of the world’s total music and most of the information ever produced.
It is precisely for this reason that our focus is on creating tools that can be used in the platform where children and young people spend the most time, and that accessibility and support for vulnerable people come closer to the victim.

How does the App work?
The app is easy to use:
- Register with name, age, gender and school. You also have the option to register an email address of a person you trust and you want to know immediately when something happens.
- After registration, your registered data is stored and protected according to GDPR
- READY! You can now, for example, send reports to us if you’ve been bullied at your school, watch short films with advices on how to act if you’ve been subjected to violations or chat directly with a Make a Change support volunteer regarding what happened to you.
What happens with the reports?
All reports submitted are reviewed by Make a Change and compiled. This material will then be sent to the relevant school and responsible municipality for information regarding the incident. According to the school law, all incoming complaints shall be investigated regardless of how they are reported.
