Supporters registration sets new record!

03 Feb 2022 Ben House

Last year, we reached over 51% of UK children aged 8-17 years, and 38% of UK parents and carers, with a grand total of 2,137 signing up as supporters.

Under two weeks ago, we brought you the news that 1000 schools and organisations had registered their support for Safer Internet Day, commencing in under a week’s time on the 8th February.

We are overjoyed at the stream of support for Safer Internet Day 2022, and to announce that our supporters list has since doubled to over 2,229, surpassing last year’s total!

This means that this year’s total number of supporters will be a new record.

The supporters list showcases what activities are taking place across the UK on Safer Internet Day to promote the safe and positive use of technology.

Our supporters list currently stands at 2229 (and counting!) – this includes 1990 schools and colleges, 68 charities, 67 businesses and 29 governmental bodies.

With under a week to go, we highly encourage you to sign your school or organisation up as a supporter if you haven’t already.

Once registered, you will receive a certificate to show your support for the day and, following review, your logo, organisation name and supportive statement will appear on the UK Safer Internet Centre Website. With your help, we can reach more young people, educators, parents and carers than ever before.
