Here at Safer London we are taking part in Safer Internet Day – a national campaign run by the UK Safer Internet Centre, helping to keep children and young people safe online.
How you can keep your children safe online
We all have a responsibility to keep our children and young people in our care safe. And online spaces can feel a bit like unchartered territory, as new websites and apps are coming out all the time.
We don’t want to scare young people, and we’d never encourage them to stop using social media if they don’t want to. After all, the internet is an amazing tool for knowledge, socialising and entertainment. The best thing we can do is to engage young people in conversation: allow them to be honest about what they are seeing online, and let them know what support is out there. By creating and open dialogue with your child, you can empower them to mitigate risk for themselves.
For more information and tips on how to keep young people safe online, read the advice post on our blog.
Book a free online safety Lunch & Learn session
We offer Lunch & Learn sessions about keeping young people safe online. These sessions are designed for parents and carers in their places of work, and they are completely free of charge. These one hour sessions cover the essentials and will signpost you to more information on keeping the young people in your care safe.
