Safer Internet Day (SID) is organised by the UK Safer Internet Centre (UKSIC) in February of each year in order to promote the safe and responsible use of online technology and mobile phones for children and young people. Safer Internet Day 2014 will take place on Tuesday 11th February 2014, with the theme ‘let’s create a better internet together’. The day offers the opportunity to focus on the creative things that children and young people are doing online, as well as exploring the role and responsibility that all stakeholders have in helping to create a better internet.
Let’s create a better internet together
The UKSIC provides Safer Internet Day specific resources and support for children, young people, parents and carers as well as teachers and school staff. It also facilitates a wide range of organisations to join together in order to amplify the safer internet message. The centre is a partnership of three leading charitable organisations, Childnet International, the South West Grid for Learning (SWGfL) and the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF). These organisations are committed to working to make a safer and better internet. All partners recognise the unparalleled opportunities the internet offers and actively encourage its positive use for social, leisure, economic and educational advancement. The partners all work towards the Childnet target; to make the Internet a great and safe place for children.
