Did you know that today, 11th February is Safer Internet Day?
Safer Internet Day (SID) is organised in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre in February of each year 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 both the creative things that
children and young people are doing online, as well as the role and responsibility that all stakeholders
have in helping to create a better internet.
The UKSIC provides Safer Internet Day specific resources and support for children and young people,
parents and carers as well as teachers and school staff and facilitates a wide range of organizations to join
together to amplify the safer internet message.
The UK Safer Internet 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. The UK Safer Internet Centre is online at
