Safer Internet Day
Over the years, Safer Internet Day has become a landmark event in the online safety calendar. Starting as an initiative of the EU SafeBorders project in 2004 and taken up by the Insafe network as one of its earliest actions in 2005, Safer Internet Day has grown beyond its traditional geographic zone and is now celebrated in approximately 170 countries worldwide.

Social Media Checklist (SWGfL)
In recent years, digital wellbeing has played an important part within the wider reach of mental and physical health. It relates to how the use of digital technology including personal devices, social media and other apps can impact on an individual’s life. With more and more people being online, digital wellbeing has gathered more attention and has quickly been recognised as an area of life that needs supporting for children as well as adults.
Digital wellbeing can be affected by many things, such as how long we spend on devices, how we behave online, how we interact with others, how others interact with us, what we expose ourselves to, what we’re influenced by and how we use technology to achieve desired outcomes. Much like general wellbeing, it can contribute to other areas such as our overall physical and mental health.
