We are working for a world where everyone thrives online, safe from harm.
We work together to identify threats and harms online and then create and deliver critical advice, resources, and interventions that help keep children and young people safe.
A bridge between Government, industry, law enforcement and society, we are the engine of the online protection landscape in the UK, dealing with both prevention, protection and response.
We share skills and expertise to identify emerging threats, take direct action against them, and provide support to children, young people and those who care for them, with an end-to-end approach. Here’s a report on our achievements.
We run UK Safer Internet Day, the critical touchpoint each year in the education of young people across the UK about online safety. Our reach is unparalleled by any other organisation working in this space. In 2023, we reached over half of all children in the UK.
We hold annual drop-in sessions and events in the UK Parliament around Safer Internet Day where parliamentarians can speak to children about their views.
