Safe Internet Explorers

We've got the opportunity to make the internet safer for children. But we need your help.

The law's there to keep children safe. So that films are suitable for their age. So they can't just walk into sex shops. And toys are made with their safety in mind.

But the law doesn't give children the same protection online.

Right now, the government is working on new digital laws. Join us to demand:

  • websites, games and apps meet minimum safety standards
  • moderators are trained to spot signs of bullying online
  • simple steps are put in place to prevent children coming across sexual and violent content.

Help us make sure that children can be Safe Internet Explorers.
