“Safer Internet Day is a pivotal moment to stress the importance of online safety and unite against online bullying for children in the UK. We advocate for a safe and positive online experience for every child. In 2024, we wholeheartedly support the theme, ‘Want to talk about it? Making space for conversations about life online.’ The Anti-Bullying Alliance collaborated with young people, advising tech companies on addressing online bullying. While progress has been made including with the introduction of the Online Safety Act, there’s a collective recognition that more decisive action is needed. We hope to send a message this Safer Internet Day and call for social media and gaming platforms to define acceptable behaviour, respond promptly to bullying, and be transparent about its prevalence. Together, let’s create a safer and more conversational online environment for all.”
