Online Advice for Parents

We have compiled useful websites and information to enable parents to make informed choices about their own and their children’s online use. We strive to keep you up-to-date with current advice in order to safeguard your children against some of the dangers that they could experience in the online world.

It is important to have regular conversations about staying safe online and to encourage children to speak to you if they come across something worrying online.

These resources provide guidance for parents and carers to keep children safe online. They will, amongst other things, support you to talk to your child about a range of online safety issues, set up home filtering in a child-friendly way and set up age-appropriate parental controls on digital devices:
