Safer Internet Day 2023 takes place on Tuesday, 7 February 2023. Significantly, it is the 20th edition of the campaign!
It is organised by the Insafe/INHOPE network of European Safer Internet Centres (SICs) and is a global, community-led observance which provides a space for all stakeholders to reflect on how together we can promote a responsible, respectful, critical and creative use of digital technologies with the ultimate goal of fostering a better internet for all. Everyone has a role to play in creating and maintaining a better online world.
2023’s celebrations and learning are based around the theme ‘Want to talk about it? Making space for conversations about life online’. This year the hope is to answer the following questions:
What issues really matter to children and young people?
What changes do they want to see?
How can we all work together to advocate for them moving forward?
Please remind your members that if they or their child have any safeguarding concerns that they can refer these directly to the Club Welfare Officer or if its urgent they should call the NSPCC 24-hour helpline on 0808 800 5000. If it is an emergency because a child or children are at immediate risk, then they should call the Police or Children’s Social Care in your area.
Thank you for all that you are continuing to do to support your members and ensure everyone remains as positive, safe and healthy as possible.
