FIGHT BACK

An App created for children and young people

FIGHT BACK is an app created for children and young people with the purpose of giving them support as well as giving them more knowledge about bullying and cyberbullying through a digital channel. The app is completely free to download and will be available via AppStore or GooglePlay.

Why an App?

The purpose of the app is to offer a modern channel for vulnerable children and young people to easily get in touch with an organization for support, chat, search about bullying, or watch educational films with tips and advices on what to do if you are exposed to cyberbullying or bullying in school. They will also be able to contact other organizations that offer support directly through the 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.


Below you can read more about some of the app's features.

Education

In the app there will be short educational films aiming to increase both the knowledge of bullying among children and young people, but also to help the victims. What can you do practically if you are exposed to cyberbullying? What should the school do? What should I think of and how should I act? The questions are many and that’s exactly what these movies should answer.

Chatt

The victim of bullying can easily chat directly with us via the app. Our support volunteers have many different backgrounds and are of all ages, but at least 25 years old. Everyone who wants to become support volunteers is carefully interviewed, gets a solid education, and must extract documents from the police department.

Reports

Via Fight Back the users will be able to report incidents that occur at the school the user enters, such as physical bullying, verbal bullying, psychological bullying and cyberbullying. The victim may also choose to talk directly with us threw our chat about what has happened and get advices about the incident.

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.
