Safer Internet Day – Start the chat

22 January 2021 by

Safer Internet Day is to be celebrated on Tuesday 9 February, and this year the commissioner of eSafety has created the theme of Start the chat. This being an opportunity for all in the community to raise awareness of online issues and to share strategies for our young adults to stay safe while online.

The eSafety commission offers free online safety webinars for parents/guardians. These live webinars provide parents/guardians with the knowledge, skills and tools to support their son/daughter to have safe and positive online experiences. Visit: https://www.esafety.gov.au/parents/webinars to find more information.

The past year has seen the internet bring us together and to share more than ever before, and yet reportedly one in five young people admit to being socially excluded, threatened or abused online. The office of the eSafety commissioner offers strategies and advice on how to keep our young adults safe online, so visit https://www.esafety.gov.au/ for more information.
