The contacts invited were already contacts of Bridging to the future and were selected due to
their regular contact with teenagers and young children. 3 people were present, with all three
individuals representing a different organization that work with young people. The location of the
meeting was at Aston University, a venue that all participants were familiar with, and somewhere
that room hire is free due to the contacts that BTF have. Being the first partnership meeting,
participants were informed a little beforehand about the project, so that they knew what to
The 2nd Regional Partnership
The same contacts were invited to the second meeting for numerous reasons. Firstly, the
participants who attended the first meet were very co-operative, and were very engaged with the
issue and need for a high quality deliverable. Secondly, the participants meet with the target
group on a regular basis and so know the importance of creating an effective tool to help stop
cyberbullying. The meeting time and venue remained the same as the first meeting. This was
because the participants were particularly pleased with the facilities provided, and the quality of
meeting venue. The venue was not only local for all participants, but also contained adequate
space and modern technology, such as a TV that participants could connect wirelessly to share
their ideas and thoughts.
The 3rd Regional Partnership
BTF realized the need to expand the regional partnership so decided to change the meeting
venue and meet directly with potential new partners. This is beneficial for the new partners being
as they don’t have to travel to attend a partnership meeting. The school is also used as a partner
in a few other of the BTF projects and the ACBC project is perfectly suited to what the school are
trying to achieve internally with regards to stopping cyberbullying and offering more support to
pupils who are potentially facing a tough time on the internet, particularly when using social
media. Due to the lack of updates since the second partnership meeting, the previous partners
were not invited to the third meeting, but new partners were invited instead.
The 4th Regional Partnership
The three representatives for the 3 organizations from the second partnership meeting were
invited to discuss the progress of the game since the last meeting that was held with the original
three partners. The meeting venue that was used for the previous meeting was chosen again due
to the partners liking the working environment and ability to easily attend the meeting. A second
member of KEFWL attended a meeting 2 days earlier but to keep consistency, KEFWL was invited
to the 4 th meeting also.
The 5th Regional Partnership
The 5th regional partnership meeting had a familiar theme to the first, whereby the
partnership was given a project update. The 5th partnership meeting was the largest
meeting to date, partially helped by the coronavirus freeing up people’s time and allowing
them to be more flexible with work. The online meeting meant that people didn’t have to
travel to a meeting place, but instead could connect wirelessly from their home, therefore
saving people the travel time and also being more convenient.
Similar people were invited to the previous meetings; however, many young adult teachers
were invited to the 5th meeting as BTF realized the potential of these individuals to help
disseminate the project and its outputs to the relevant target group. The meeting time was
chosen to be midday being as this time was seen to be most convenient by the partnership.
The user guide was a focus of the meeting, and so to ensure the meeting was a success, the
user guide was distributed to the participants before they joined the meeting.
