An annual campaign focused on using technology responsibly and respectfully has inspired us to give back to the local community.
Safer Internet Day, which took place on Tuesday 11th February, saw hundreds of organisations across the UK, Europe, and beyond pledging their commitment to promote the safe, sensible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
To mark the day, we’re launching a free-to-access Facebook group for parents that will offer education and advice about the various platforms that exist. ‘The Parent’s Social Media Hub’ is aimed initially at Wiltshire-based parents and will be a non-judgemental, safety focused, community group where no question is too small.
Natalie Sherman, our Founder and Director, comments on the group; “When talking to parents, I know the biggest pain point for them is actually understanding how each platform works. Where to find safety features and settings and knowing the language to use when speaking to their children about social media. It’s overwhelming. This needs to be addressed and we want to support parents to have conversations about staying safe online.”
We encourage Wiltshire-based parents to join the Facebook group, and will be there to offer free advice on topics such as how each platform works, how to monitor behaviour on social media, ongoing trends to be aware of, and how to limit screen time.
As always, please get in touch if there’s anything you need support with.
