NSPCC NetAware

The Net Aware website features over 60 social networking sites, apps and games popular with children. It features websites, apps and games which have been reviewed by a panel of parents  and children and have all been rated in terms of how easy it is to change privacy settings and find any safety advice. The Net Aware site also highlights the types of inappropriate content that can be found on the sites as well as how easy it is to report concerns about abuse or bullying.

UK Safer Internet Centre

 

In addition to coordinating Safer Internet Day every year, the UK Safer Internet Centre delivers a wide range of activity to promote the safe and responsible use of technology:

  • founded and operates an e-safety helpline for professionals working with children in the UK
  • operates the UK’s hotline for reporting online criminal content
  • develops new educational resources for children, parents and carers and teachers to meet emerging trends in the fast-changing online environment
  • delivers education sessions for children, parents, carers, teachers and the wider children’s workforce
  • shapes policy at school, industry and government level, both in the UK and internationally, and facilitates youth panels to give young people a voice on these issues.

 

 

We should however:

.... remember that the internet is an essential part of young people's lives and it provides them with great opportunities.  Most people use it without coming to any harm so we must be realistic; banning the internet or web sites often will not work and it can make a child feel less able to report problems or concerns, so education around safe use is essential.
