Online safety


Childnet is a UK-based charity who empower children, young people, and those who support them in their online lives, and its mission is to work with others to make the internet a great and safe place for children and young people.

Launched in 1995, just two years after the public launch of the open web, Childnet has delivered a positive impact with its empowering, youth led, evidence based and collaborative approach to online safety and giving children and young people the skills they need to navigate the internet safely and in a positive way.

Childnet’s mission is to work with others to help make the internet a great and safe place for children.

The National Crime Agency's CEOP Education team aim to help protect children and young people from online child sexual abuse.

This is done through their education programme, providing training, resources and information to professionals working with children, young people and their families.


As a child grows, it is likely they are spending more and more time online.

There are so many positive things about being online like staying connected with friends and family, pursuing interests, and being part of communities. But it is not always a safe and positive experience for children.

Unicef offers support on how you can help your child maximize all the good things the internet and digital technologies have to offer, while protecting them against potential harm.
