Helping your children to keep safe online is one of the most important lessons we can teach our children due

to the many possible risks associated with internet use. Gone are the days where the family computer can be

set up downstairs so parents can keep track of childrens' usage easily. Children are increasingly connected on

a range of devices at home, friends@ houses or anywhere through mobile networks or Wi-Fi hotspots.

We hope that this page will signpost you to some resources that may be of use to help parents understand

with your child around keeping safe.
