The internet is a great place to see more, learn more and have lots of fun, however, it can also be dangerous if it is not used responsibly. With the ever growing popularity of social networking, sites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube often know more about you that you might have thought.
In order to help children and young people enjoy the internet safely DCC have developed pocket guides which gives handy tips on how to stay safe online and use the internet responsibly.
Technology is becoming so advanced that you can access the internet in lots of different ways. This is great news for enjoying gaming, social networking, chatting and researching your favourite celebrities. However, while you enjoy the nice side of the internet, it’s very important that you’re aware of the risks involved with such a public and open world. Our simple guide “A young person’s guide to e safety” (3 pages, 1221kb) teaches children and young people to stay safe by following the ‘Click Clever, Click Safe’ code.
Parents and carers
To help you keep up with the fast pace of the ever changing world of technology, DCC have developed a PDF “Parents guide to E safety” (8 pages, 927kb). As you would protect your child in the real world, you also need to keep them safe in the virtual world.
