We have no plans at present to widen membership of the Social Media Action Group. The Group was established by the Home Office in April 2018 to help action to be taken against gang and violent content online by bringing together social media companies, key voluntary sector partners, the police, and government.

However, depending on the agenda and discussion and action being taken, we are willing to invite different organisation or groups to its meetings if they can make a contribution.
