The advice you see in this section of our website was provided by the UK Council for Child Internet Safety ("UKCCIS"). More than forty organisations helped to create the advice, including the Child Exploitation and Online Protection, the Department of Education, Department of Culture Media and Sport, the Home Office, the Office of Communications, the London School of Economics and many others.
UKCCIS is a voluntary organisation, chaired by Ministers of Parliament, which brings together over 180 organisations and individuals from government, industry, academia, charities, and parenting groups. Its aim is to help children and young people to stay safe online.
Each part of the advice is presented using a common format and avoids the use of industry jargon wherever possible. We hope you will find it helpful, and have it in the back of your mind every time you go online.
