Safer Internet Day
Safer Internet Day 2022 will be celebrated on 8th February with the theme ‘All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online’.
From gaming and chat, to streaming and video, young people are shaping the interactive entertainment spaces they are a part of. Safer Internet Day 2022 celebrates young people’s role in creating a safer internet, whether that is whilst gaming and creating content, or interacting with their friends and peers.
CLUBS - Please pass this around your members to get them involved and have a conversation with their young footballers about the safe and positive use of technology!

Keeping children safe while gaming online
A workshop has been developed by the NSPCC for Safer Internet Day themed around gaming and talking to people online.
We're asking Clubs to promote the workshop to parents and carers - use this link for your WhatsApp Groups - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YO6Ux7qfYXk
Do you know your whispers from your skins? Your Fortnite from your FIFA?
This February, the NSPCC are supporting UK Safer Internet Centre’s Safer Internet Day and encouraging families across the UK to get talking about online gaming.
The workshop ‘Keeping children safe while gaming online’ will help give parents and carers an understanding of how young people game online and knowledge of tools and resources that can help to keep them safe.
