Digital Safety

With children spending more time online than ever before, it can be a huge challenge for parents and carers to keep up to date and to know how to implement parental controls and privacy settings to help keep their children safe.

On hand to offer friendly help and support is a team of Digital Volunteers who are offering remote support for basic digital safety enquiries. They can talk you through how to set up privacy settings and parental controls on a range of apps and devices. To get in touch with this FREE service, please phone 0330 222 3455 or email your name, phone number and a brief description of the help needed, to the digital support library.
