The ongoing development of technology, and in particular the internet, provides endless opportunities for adults, children and young people but at the same it also brings risks such as cyberbullying, identity theft and scams, exposure to pornography and other inappropriate sites, online grooming and exploitation.
e-Safer Suffolk aims to raise the awareness of e-safety issues with children, young people, families, vulnerable adults and those who work with them, to enable everyone to enjoy the internet safely.
Suffolk also has an Online e-Safety strategy and produces an annual cybersurvey for children and young people.
Further information about e-Safer Suffolk, the cybersurvey, online safety tools, resources, tips and advice, can be found on the e-Safer Suffolk page.
