Keep safe online

Guest Article – Hwb

Our children are spending more time online whether for school, gaming or to keep in touch with friends and family. There are so many benefits to being online but we know there can be some downsides too.

It’s important that children and young people understand how to keep as safe as possible – and know where to go if something goes wrong. It’s just as important for parents and carers to understand this too.

That’s why we’ve worked with leading organisations and experts in online safety to create a whole range of relevant, straightforward information and advice on the Keeping Safe Online area of Hwb.

There’s specific information for parents and carers including guides that cover what you need to know about the most popular social media and gaming apps children are using today.

There are also links signposting where to go for confidential advice and support as well as information about how to report any issues.
