The internet is such an integral part of children and young people’s lives and it opens up so many educational and social opportunities, giving them access to a world of information and experiences. As technology advances, the ways in which we communicate, receive and send information constantly change. This provides a great opportunity for organisations to promote their activities and communicate easily with members but it can also put children and young people at considerable risk, which is why safeguards must be put in place.
Whether on a computer at school, a laptop at home, a games console or mobile phone, children and young people are increasingly accessing the internet whenever they can and wherever they are. As you would protect children and young people in the real world, you will want to make sure that they are safe whatever they are doing.
