  5. Safer Internet Day

    "Safer Internet Day is important in making everyone think about their actions online, but this is something that people should be thinking about every day. It’s important that teenagers and adults alike remember that the things they do online can have the same consequences as those offline. We want young people to have a fun, creative and enriching experience online but also be safe in whatever they’re doing. It’s imperative that young people learn about online safety and have an awareness of their actions from an early age, as this is knowledge which will resonate throughout their life. We think a good rule of thumb for young people is that if you don’t think your mum would like what you are doing online, don’t do it.“
