The Charlotte Project Workshops are free. They are delivered by trained journalists. The exercises in the workshops are designed to help students understand that they should not trust all sources of information equally, that they should question the motives of the sources and check the facts that those sources are putting forward.

We hope that the skills learned in the workshop will help enable students to stay safe online, have confidence to engage in current affairs, prevent them from being radicalised online and also be enriching.

If you would like to host one at your school please contact us via our Contact page, through our Facebook page or by email info@charlotteproject.org
