Internet Safety Resources

UK Safer Internet Centre

A partnership of 3 leading organisations:

  • Childnet International
  • Internet Watch Foundation
  • SWGfL

With one mission – to promote the safe and responsible use of technology for young people. The partnership was appointed by the European Commission as the Safer Internet Centre for the UK in January 2011 and is one of the 31 Safer Internet Centres of the Insafe network. The centre has three main functions:

  1. Awareness Centre: to provide advice and support to children and young people, parents and carers, schools and the children’s workforce and to coordinate Safer Internet Day across UK.
  2. Helpline: to provide support to professionals working with children and young people with online safety issues.
  3. Hotline: an anonymous and safe place to report and remove child sexual abuse imagery and videos, wherever they are found in the world. 

Dot Com Children’s Foundation

Created with children, safeguarding leads, Essex Police and the National Police Chief Council Lead for Internet Intelligence and Investigations, Dot Com Digital is an enhanced digital version of the Dot Com safeguarding programme.

Dot Com Digital will keep up to date with current trends and issues reported by children and the police, and part of our commitment is to ensure this will also be reflected within this free section.
