As annual Internet Safety Day takes place Labour is calling on the Government to put their money where their mouth is to keep children safe online.
The UK Safer Internet Centre is a partnership of three leading organisations: Histon based Internet Watch Foundation, Childnet International and SWGfL. But its EU guaranteed funding runs out at the end of December
With more and more everyday tasks taking place online the amount of screen time for children has soared during the pandemic and there has never been a more important time to help children stay safe online.
The annual awareness day sees kids and their parents get top tips and advice on how to tackle the cyber bullies, spot online stranger danger and avoid being a victim of revenge porn. Last year the event reached 49% of young people aged 8-17 and 26% of parents.
Daniel Zeichner MP said: “No one who voted for Brexit voted to put kids in danger online. The government need to stump up the cash now so the UK Safer Internet Centre can carry on doing its vital work.”
