Netsafe and Te Mana Whakaatu – Classification Office (the Office) are seeking assistance from a research provider to develop qualitative research with rangatahi.

The research will explore young people's experiences and views about media content, online behaviour, and the potential impacts on body image and associated health and wellbeing issues.

The research aims to address a gap in knowledge about these issues in Aotearoa, and to raise awareness and see educational resources developed. Research findings may also inform the development of policy and regulatory responses to young people’s engagement with this content and clinical or therapeutic responses, awareness and understanding.

Research design:

The research provider will be responsible for research design, recruitment, data collection/analysis, producing a report of findings, and assisting the Office research team to draft a final report for publication.

• We expect that the primary format will be up to 50 single participant interviews, and an additional number of participants receiving clinical care (no more than 10). Participants will include a diverse range of young people age 14-17.
• The research will have a robust ethics process ensuring the safety and privacy of participants, and will be informed by Treaty principles ensuring effective and ethical research practices with respect to Māori.

RFP issued: 5 Apr
Proposal submitted: 1 May
Research commissioned: 5 May
Report with analysis of findings submitted: By 2 Oct
Final report published: By 30 Nov

Budget: up to $100,000.
