Winter break online safety resources | Take our dark web survey
23rd December 2020 c360admin


This year, many of us will be relying on tech over the festive period for entertainment and, most importantly, to keep in touch with friends and family.
Here are a few of our resources that you can share with parents, carers and children and young people to help them have a safer online experience over the winter break.

Being social online this December: a parent’s guide

Access to new tech over the winter period can provide new opportunities for children and young people but also present risks.

Our guide for parents looks at how they can support their child to be safer online this season by focusing on 3 key areas: viewing, sharing, chatting and friending.

4 steps you can take to help children stay safer

Our new post take you through the importance of conversations with children and young people about communicating safely online, helping them to understand how to report anything worrying, and reminding parents and carers about setting up parental controls.

You’ll also find examples of resources that you can use to build on these conversations and develop skills and knowledge in the new year.

Help us learn more about young people and the dark web

We are currently working with The Children’s Society and Marie Collins Foundation to find out more about young people’s experiences using the dark web, and how they can be protected from encountering the associated risks.

To learn more about the extent of young people’s experiences using the dark web, we want to hear from all professionals working with 11 to 18 year olds. This includes those without prior knowledge or experiences of young people using the dark web.

The survey should take roughly 10 minutes to complete and will close on Friday 22 January 2021.

Thank you for your input.
