Enhancing online safety for children overview

Episode 14,   Sep 02, 2019, 08:12 AM

Do you have online safety measures in place to protect children and young people. This episode focuses on how to enhance online safety for children and young people and deal with issues that arise online.

Our host Chris Cloke and Gawain Griffiths, a Website Supervisor for the NSPCC discuss:

  • how to run online services safely and manage an online presence effectively adopting professional and personal life boundaries online, particularly, with social media and email accounts
  • the impact of bullying and how to prevent it online and respond appropriately 
  • who organisations can go to for resources, guidelines, templates and support
  • what children and young people tell Childline about keeping safe online.
These episodes were produced as part of a partnership led by NCVO, funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and the National Lottery Fund within the Safeguarding Training Fund programme.
