Being online to connect and game with friends, or to learn with classmates brings huge benefits for children and young people. But we also know that they’re worried about potential online risks, like bullying or seeing hateful content.

No-one is more immersed in the online world than young people. So as we work to make it a safer place, we really want to hear their ideas and base our plans on their real-world experiences.

As we gear up for the task of regulating online safety, we’re proud to support Safer Internet Day to raise awareness of the crucial skills our children need to enjoy a safer life online.
