At Kicsters we're passionate about keeping young people safe in their community, however we are equally passionate about equiping them with the information and resources they need to stay safe online.
Many devices are able to connect to the internet; computers, tablets, mobile phones, TV's, games consoles etc. Though the internet brings many benefits to individuals and society, it can also be harmful and dangerous.
We know it can be challenging to keep up to speed with what young people are doing online so we have pulled together some resources for young people, parents & teachers to educate young people about online risks.
