As our lives increasingly move online, the importance of online safety is perhaps greater now than ever. 

Although online safety is often associated with children and young people, and is indeed an important issue in the arena of children's safeguarding, there is a need for everyone to be mindful of the risks posed to them online. For example, scams can lead to the financial exploitation of adults, particularly older people. 

These resources are designed to raise awareness of the risks associated with being online, as well as promoting online safety.
