Stay Safe Online This Christmas

Young people often spend their time over the Christmas holidays digitally connected to others which can be family, friends, or strangers. Smartphones and mobile devices have access to online platforms, which can present risks of cyberbullying, scams, and seeing inappropriate content.

Loneliness at Christmas can mean many young people seek company through social media platforms with unknown users, making them even more at risk of being exploited or coerced into sharing pictures or information that is then used against them.

Young people must be safeguarded from potentially harmful and inappropriate online material and behaviours UK Safer Internet Centre offers advice and guidance.

To promote online safety, the NSPCC has opened applications for its Online Safety Youth Taskforce for young people aged 13 to 16 across the UK, to help shape decisions about children’s safety online.

The Taskforce allows young people to meet decision-makers, influence policies, and share their thoughts on how to help make the online world a safer place. Applications close on 12 January 2024.
