The Internet can help vulnerable adults by providing tools to create new or extended support networks, develop new skills and knowledge and manage day-to-day living.

In April 2012, the Young Voices Youth Parliament launched a Cyberbullying film. This was made possible by funding from Suffolk Constabulary. The film was designed, scripted, and acted by members of the Youth Parliament and the Hearing Voices Steering Group, with filming, editing and additional material undertaken by students from Lapwings Suffolk.
The Out & About Youtube Channel gives you access to not only the Cyberbullying film called "That's the Rule!", but other films that Out & About have produced.
