How safe is the internet for your child?

The internet - like real life - is both good and bad.

Children need to learn and play in a safe environment, but unfortunately the internet is far from safe. “Family Safety” is here to help parents and carers ensure that their child’s experience of the internet is a good one.

There is no charge for the material on this site and we get no funding for our work. We charge affordable rates for our presentations on “Online Safety”. Contact us if you know of a school or group of parents who may be interested.

How can a parent/carer ensure that their child’s online experience is safe?
