Making Sense of Media Advisory Panel

Making sense of media The Making Sense of Media Advisory Panel informs Ofcom's work to help improve the online skills, knowledge and understanding of UK adults and children. The Panel provides first-class insight to support and challenge our thinking.

Our Panel focuses on the following activities:

  • Sounding board and critical friend: representing a range of perspectives, the Panel will advise and challenge our media literacy work.
  • Connector: the Panel will help connect Ofcom to the right expertise at the right time, so our work is informed by best practice across the sector.
  • Horizon scanning: the Panel will support our thinking on emerging media literacy opportunities and challenges, such as those brought about by new consumer technology. It will highlight new themes or trends to consider, particularly where Ofcom has an opportunity to intervene early.

The Panel is a voluntary forum. Members are appointed by Ofcom for an initial term of 24 months, and they will be expected to commit no more than two-and-a-half days a year.
