It is hoped that it will encourage the wider technology industry, policy makers and parents to work together to establish resources for parents that wish to protect their children from the internet's darker side...
...Internet Matters is an independent, not-for-profit organisation to help parents keep their children safe online.
The possibilities of this new connected world are exciting and infinite. The internet is the most important innovation of our time, if not all time. It makes it simple to connect, communicate, learn and share.
At Internet Matters we believe in maximising children’s potential online, while staying safe.
As Broadband usage has grown in the UK, and more and more devices now access the internet, as a parent it can be increasingly challenging to find out what you can do to keep your children safe online.
Our research has found that 74% of parents want more information and advice about child internet safety. In response, the four major internet service providers in the UK (BT, Sky,TalkTalk and Virgin Media) have got together to launch Internet Matters. Supported by leading experts, we have developed this online portal specifically designed for all parents to access simple, easy and practical advice so that you can make confident, informed choices when it comes to children’s online safety.
