Key Information

Safeguarding & e-safety

The internet and social media are now a part of everyday life.

This technology offers opportunities to learn, to be entertained and to socialise. We need to support our children in safely accessing the internet, and in developing the skills to make informed decisions about what they access and share with others. As the use of the internet has grown to encompass all areas of life, children need to develop the resilience to deal with potential situations that arise in order keep themselves safe, while exploring and enjoying the positive aspects of the internet.

The helpline will also provide support to parents and professionals. Anyone who gets in touch through this dedicated helpline will also be signposted to other relevant support services available, including Childline, which provides ongoing support and counselling to children and young people.
