Nominet Children’s Online Safety programme aims to equip young people with the skills to help them navigate the challenges posed by being online. The focus is on improving the safety of young internet users through programmes in schools, supporting partner organisations to further develop their activities in this area.
Childnet is one of the partner organisations that we are supporting in this area. The Childnet and Nominet Digital Leaders Plus programme is a youth leadership training programme empowering young people to educate their peers about online safety. 70% of the schools or organisations that have tried Childnet’s guest login and not gone on to subscribe, say that whilst that they think the programme would be a fantastic addition to their curriculum, cost is the biggest barrier to subscribing.
Our funding will help the Childnet team to expand the reach of the programme into areas in the UK which have a higher rate of multiple deprivation, giving more young people the opportunity to take part without the budget of their school being a limiting factor.
