A better way to play

The Game Safe Festival was our event to explore ways to play and act to keep children safe online.


We celebrated everything that’s best about the world of gaming. The community, collaboration and creativity.

And with your support, we took action to make gaming safer for children.

We brought together key players to make sure children have positive gaming experiences. And helped the adults in their lives have the knowledge, confidence and tools they need to help keep children safe when they game.


Why you should take part

  • 89% of children in the UK play video games, but online harms are increasing.
  • If you’re a gamer, this is your chance to join exclusive events and competitions. You can also be at the forefront of conversations that will improve the industry.
  • If you’re a parent, you can make sure you know how to keep children safe while they game. You can also be confident about navigating the world of gaming so your child can come to you for advice and support.

"Minecraft and YouTube are my way of coping. When I’m making content, I can forget about the bullying. I’ve got supportive friends there and it feels like the worst stuff is behind me."
