When someone cares
Teachers. Do you have a cyber-bullying or digital safety concern? The Safer Internet Centre has been funded by the European Commission to provide a Helpline for professionals who work with children and young people in the UK, specifically tackling the area of e-safety. We provide support with all aspects of digital and online issues such as social networking sites, online bullying, sexting, online gaming and child protection online. The Helpline aims to resolve issues professionals face about themselves, such as protecting professional identity and reputation, as well as young people in relation to online safety.

First to a Million focuses on young people posting video content to sites like YouTube, how quickly things can spiral out of control and where they can get help if it does. The film follows a group of teens in their battle to be first to a million views of their increasingly outrageous films. At each step the viewer gets to choose what the characters do next, teaching teenagers how easy it is to make the wrong choices online.
First to a Million is available to view on Youtubeor it can be found on the Thinkuknow website
