E-Safety

Safer Internet Day 2015 will be celebrated globally on Tuesday 7th February with the focus on 'Be the change: Unite for a better internet'. This is an opportunity to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community. Safer Internet Day calls upon young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, policymakers and wider, to join together in helping to create a better and safer internet.

In support of Safer Internet Day, the Greenwich Safeguarding Children Board (GSCB) has launched an e-safety campaign, called Greenwich Click Safe, to help parents, carers and professionals keep children safe online. The online world is a wonderful place for young people to explore, with unprecedented opportunities for learning and creativity, but just like the real world there are risks and dangers they should be aware of and which we should all act to protect them from.

The GSCB encourages the use of technology as an important part of our children and young people’s development but want them to spend their time online safely. As a professional working with children and young people, you can play a significant part in ensuring this.

As part of this campaign we have developed an e-safety information and advice hub, hosted on the GSCB website here. This online information hub provides links to relevant e-safety resources aimed at: children and young people; parents and carers; professionals and volunteers.
