The digital world is constantly changing. Many children now own or have access to a smartphone, tablet, laptop/PC and games consoles, each linking to the internet. Schools work with children raising awareness and understanding of how to use the internet safely. As parents and carers, it is also important to know how to encourage children to stay safe online or where to go if and when further advice is needed.

There are organisations that provide parents and carers with lots of information, guidance and helpful tools, raising awareness of how to keep your child safe. Recommended websites are noted below.

You can also find additional resources and information within the 'I am a child/young person' section of this website. Included are links to websites which have been designed with children in mind, providing useful information and age-related activity based resources.
