Keeping up with what children and young people are doing on the Internet can be challenging for parents and carers.
Internet safety was the focus of the Byron Review in 2008, and the December 2009 launch of the UKCCIS Strategy has increased the attention paid to this topic. With a new Government public awareness campaign designed to target parents on this important topic, this may be something that your constituents ask you about.
Childnet have produced a series of leaflets and online resources with the support of partners including the DCSF, UKCCIS, TDA and Becta to provide simple and easy to use guidance for parents, carers, teachers and young people on staying safe on the Internet.
If you need more information, are interested in Childnet's work, or would like to order printed copies of any of these resources for your constituency office, please contact Lucinda Fell, Policy and Communications Manager, firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7639 6967
