Access to new tech over the winter period can provide new opportunities for children and young people but also present risks.

4 steps you can take to help children stay safer

Our new post take you through the importance of conversations with children and young people about communicating safely online, helping them to understand how to report anything worrying, and reminding parents and carers about setting up parental controls. 

You'll also find examples of resources that you can use to build on these conversations and develop skills and knowledge in the new year.
