We hope the information contained here will help serve as a guide to keep our young people safe and legal when using the Internet. This guide will also cover safeguarding information for both young people and parents alike.
The internet, mobile phones, social networking and other interactive services have transformed the way in which we live. Children and young people are amongst the early adopters of the new technologies and move effortlessly between the various interactive services and devices to communicate, interact create and share content with friends and family. They also often use these technologies as part of the school curriculum.
This is why it is extremely important to make young people more aware of the dangers they may come across online and to direct them for help and advice if they need it.
