As the world continues to change, it's important for all children and young people to have the support they need to adapt and thrive in it.
A growing part of their world is lived online. Whether it's socialising with friends, gaming with family, or doing lessons online, the internet is now an essential part of children's daily toolkit.
While the internet offers great benefits, it can also expose children and young people to risks that can develop into harm.
From research, we know that children who experience vulnerabilities offline are more likely to experience risks online.
That's why together with SWGfL we've created the Inclusive Digital Safety hub.
A place where parents, carers, and professionals working with children and young people with additional needs, disabilities, or lifestyles that expose them to risk can be equipped and empowered to make meaningful interventions in their digital lives.
It features a range of;
Insight and research factsheets,
A resources centre
An Index of online harms
and a professional’s forum
Recognising that online safety needs to be an integral part of children's digital journey, these tailored resources can help shape the safety of all children online.
