Barnardo's supports Safer Internet Day

Release Date: 06 Feb 2018

Barnardo's is striving to make the digital world a safer place for children by supporting Safer Internet Day.

Today (Tuesday, February 6) is a day aimed at helping to inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively.

Barnardo’s Chief Executive Javed Khan said:

It’s essential we all strive to make the digital world a safer place for children.

Safer Internet Day importantly encourages tech companies, the Government and organisations to work together and put appropriate safeguards in place to protect children.

All too often our specialist services see how online spaces are used to exploit the most vulnerable children. That’s why parents need to understand the technology their children are using and have honest conversations with them about who they’re talking to and how to stay safe online.
