It is important that foster carers know how to keep the young people in their care safe on the internet. For Safer Internet Day 2018, which is celebrated globally on Tuesday 6th February 2018, we have created a video to help our foster carers teach their young people and children how to stay safe when using the internet. This video has a focus on safety when using social media.
This year, Safer Internet Day have focused their campaign around the slogan “Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you”. The campaign helps raise awareness to keep young people safe online.
