Internet safety


We are a partnership of three leading organisations: Childnet InternationalInternet Watch Foundation and SWGfL, with one mission - to promote the safe and responsible use of technology for young people.

What we do:

The partnership was appointed by the European Commission as the Safer Internet Centre for the UK in January 2011 and is one of the 31 Safer Internet Centres of the Insafe network. The centre has three main functions:

  1. Awareness Centre: to provide advice and support to children and young people, parents and carers, schools and the children's workforce and to coordinate Safer Internet Day across UK.
  2. Helpline: to provide support to professionals working with children and young people with online safety issues.
  3. Hotline: an anonymous and safe place to report and remove child sexual abuse imagery and videos, wherever they are found in the world. 

The Advice Centre provides access to guides for Children & Young People, Parents & Carers, Foster Carers & Adoptive Parents, Granparents, Teachers & School Staff, Governors & Trustees, Social Workers, Residential Care and Health Professionals plus the latest tips, advice and resources to help children and young people have a safe and positive time online
