The alarming picture: children at risk online


As it is Safer Internet Day today, we thought we would share some of the latest research findings on how children are using the internet, the risk such activity poses and where to go for further guidance. 

The last couple of months have been particularly busy for the release of information on how children and young people are engaging on the internet. The UK Council for Child and Internet Safety (UKCCIS), the NSPCC, and Ofcom have all released research papers that paint a fairly alarming picture.

The infographics below pull together some of the key findings:




Latest guidance and useful online tools:

The NSPCC is actively raising awareness of how to stay safe online through its Share Aware Campaign and its newly launched ‘Share Aware Guide’ provides some useful tips, especially for parents and carers of young people aged 8-12. 

For schools, youth groups and child protection officers, we also offer a one day training course on E-Safety that takes a closer look at how specific dangers can be reduced. It also explores both the legal and moral responsibilities for professionals involved in safeguarding children. Our trainer, Jonathan Taylor, has also written guest-posts on the subject of E-Safety in our complex digital world.
