Safeguarding Snapshot: Online Safety

January 5, 2017Comments Off on Safeguarding Snapshot: Online Safety

Online safety is fundamentally safeguarding where technology is involved. Children and young people spend a lot of time online – it can be a great way to explore, socialise and have fun. However, the online risks facing our children and young people do not conform to geographical boundaries and requires a collective approach across all agencies and county borders.
