To better understand how porn may be affecting young people in New Zealand and to help inform The Light Project’s service delivery, the project undertook a Youth Stakeholder Survey. The purpose of the survey was to assess whether stakeholders thought porn was an issue for young people based on their experiences (and if so, why?) and to identify stakeholder knowledge gaps and resource/training needs. 622 stakeholders participated in the anonymous survey across five key groups: sexual health care providers and youth organisations, whānau and caregivers, schools, faith-based organisations and therapists. The stakeholders were asked six quantitative and three qualitative questions based on their experiences and observations whilst engaging with young people. The findings suggested that the majority (94%) of stakeholders believe that porn is an issue for young people in Aotearoa. Most stakeholders (71%) are already engaging in conversations about porn with young people in their workplace, but of these, many (59%) feel unequipped, reporting a lack of porn knowledge and awareness. (From the executive summary). The Light Project has launched a website to help young people and others positively navigate the new porn landscape. Record #6055
