Leeds Safeguarding Children Partnership Your Child Safer Internet day

We've teamed up with the NSPCC, West Yorkshire Police and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner to encourage parents and carers to have a five minute chat with children to keep them safe online.

A quick discussion with young people about the sites and apps they are using and the people they are talking to online, could help protect them from any potential cyber criminals.

The internet can be an amazing place for children, so they shouldn’t be discouraged from using it, but parents should remind them that people may not always be who they say they are, and they should talk to their parents about what they are doing online. 

It can seem daunting for some parents, trying to keep up with the latest technology that their children are using, so the following websites and helplines can offer simple, practical advice on how to keep everyone safe online:
