PROBLEMS encountered online are ‘part and parcel’ of every issue dealt with by The Hub, its team leader has said.

The information, advice and support service for 11- to 16-year-olds is dealing with an increasing wave of cyber issues.

Charlie Cox, pictured, who also sits on the e-safety committee, said that the service has seen an increase over the last year in the number of people approaching them for help regarding problems they faced online.

‘It is part and parcel of issues we deal with, it is all somehow related to Facebook or other social media.’

Modern technology means agencies are having to play catch up, she said, but education was the best way to try and combat the increasingly serious issues they were dealing with.

Let's not confuse "The Hub" which deals with children (and works) with "The Hub" which deals with the States HR (and doesn't seem to work).

hmmm

Honestly

Are you trivializing online bullying or did you just not bother to read the article?

apologies - just sounded very familiar.

didn't mean to undermine the great work being done at The Hub.

The States Hub and the totally failed £7,000,000+ SAP system has cost tax-payers dearly and yet we have seen no heads roll, or any publicised legal action taken against suppliers. Yet again, we see our marvellous administration being well and truly "suckered" into buying another complete "clunker"; come back LAFIS, all is forgiven!

Not to wonder that "gagged" civil servants get acutely embarrassed when suppliers keep phoning the office day after day after day, asking where their money is! Not to wonder that some suppliers are refusing to supply the States unless they are paid and others are believed to be upping their prices to cover the cost of being the States pay-day loan suppliers.

First Capita and now SAP – £millions and £millions and £millions wasted! Why, oh why don't those in authority actually do a bit of research before wasting our money?

Mr Wonga

No need for them to do the research themselves. Just take out a subscription to Private Eye.

At the time Guernsey Electricity was depositing £6million in BCCI Private Eye had been printing warnings nap bout the business and how local authorities were withdrawing money.

Same with the Icelandic bank fiasco. Missed warnings etc.

They do seem to have followed the UK government in not seeking compensation fit the many IT mess ups.

What on earth do your comments have to do with this story? Let's not use this as another platform for States bashing. I suggest you read the story!

"...do a bit of research..."

You said it yourself there Wonga. Perhaps you should have a go.

You should go and cry about your problems and explain whose heads 'should roll' somewhere more relevant.

This is a fantastic service. Well done and thank you to everyone involved.
