Connecting with others online is a great way to keep in touch with friends and family and discover others who have shared interests. There are many ways to do this for free.
Many Children and Young People use the internet for education, social and leisure purposes. Children are naturally trusting, curious and keen to explore the web.
Keeping up with and supervising children’s online activity can be challenging, especially when they have their own computers, smartphones, tablets and game consoles or they are in other people’s homes. Understand the risks yourself and plan ahead before allowing children access to the internet. For further help visit the Local Safeguarding Board website.
