The gaming advice hub

Get expert tips on gaming to support children



Online gaming explained

Online gaming means you can play in real time with people across the world through a computer, games console, tablet or smartphone connected to the internet. Games can offer children a world of adventure to immerse themselves in, but it’s important to understand how children can stay safe and what games are appropriate for their age.

To support parents, we’ve created a hub of advice to explain and understand the world of online gaming and encourage children to game safely and responsibly online.
