Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) at Child Internet Safety Summit 2015

Published:  Thu 2 Jul 2015

The Child Internet Safety Summit, in partnership with Friendly Wifi, aims to empower carers/practitioners with the knowledge to deal with the negative side of the internet whilst encouraging children to explore the benefits of being a digital native.

Nicky and Julie of the IWF Membership Team and Ian, IWF Senior Analyst, are in London on Friday (3 July) for the third annual conference along with hundreds of attendees concerned with online safety for children. The team will be on-hand at our IWF exhibition stand to provide advice on how we work with our partners to safeguard children from becoming victims of online abuse.

Friends and Members of the IWF exhibiting at the QEII Conference Centre in Westminster include Childnet, South West Grid for Learning (SWGfL), Internet Matters, Microsoft, NSPCC, RM Education, and The Diana Award – Anti-Bullying Ambassador Programme. For more information on what they’ll be offering, and for a full list of exhibitors, see the conference’s website.

Nicky Peachment, IWF Commercial Relationship Manager, said: “This is my first time at the Child Internet Safety Summit and I’m looking forward to an informative day. There’s a whole load of familiar faces here all concerned with one thing, and that’s protecting children. At the Internet Watch Foundation we’re fighting online child sexual abuse imagery, but in order to eliminate illegal content from the internet we need to work collaboratively with a range of different organisations. That’s what today is about.”
