Get your personalised online safety toolkit in a few easy steps

  •   Answer some simple questions about your children’s digital habits (takes just a few minutes)
  •   Provide an email address to receive your own personalised online safety toolkit

Use the toolkit to:

  • Get age-specific advice to support your children online
  • Learn about popular apps and platforms your children use
  • Get information about how to deal with any online safety concerns
  • Get recommendations for digital tools to support their interests and wellbeing

How does the tool work?

Getting to know your family

To understand a little bit about you, the first section will ask you about your children to help us give you age-appropriate advice and resources.

For example, how many you have and how old they are.

Understanding your online use

Secondly, we’ll cover how you and your family use the internet to get a better understanding of what areas you might need support on, like advice on specific platforms or things your children do online, like live streaming or gaming.

Impact of using the internet

Here we’ll find out more about how your children’s internet habits and how their digital use impacts their overall wellbeing. Whether it be time spent on screens or seeing things online that may affect self-esteem or body image. This will help us to offer advice on how to support your family on these issues.

Opportunities online

Finally, we’ll ask you about what help you might need to support your children in making the most of the benefits of being online, from learning opportunities to apps about staying healthy.

How the toolkit supports your family

We regularly talk to parents about how their families’ use connected technology so we recognise that in every home digital habits are unique.

As every child is different with their own online interests and activities, we created a simple tool to help us provide tailored advice and resources to meet your family’s digital needs. Spend just a few minutes telling us about yourself and your children and we’ll provide you with a personalised set of information to help you navigate their online world and find answers to some of your questions; like ‘What do I need to know about the latest app my child uses’? How do I protect my child from inappropriate content? How can I support them to gain more digital skills?

You can also receive your guide by email to keep and review later.

What information do you need from me?

All we need to get started is your family name and email address. This will allow us to send you your personalised toolkit so you can dip in and out of it when you need to.  You can also opt-in if you’d be happy to continue receiving more advice and guidance from us in the future.
