Safer Internet Day 2017 is taking place today (Tuesday 7th February) with the theme ‘Be the change: Unite for a better internet’.

The campaign is coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre. The celebration sees hundreds of schools and organisations join together to raise awareness of online safety issues by running events and activities right across the UK.

As a result of hearing about Safer Internet Day 2016, an evaluation found that the majority of children spoke to their families about staying safe online and 87% felt more confident about what to do about any worries online.

Together we can make #SID2017 the biggest campaign yet and make a real difference to the digital lives of children right across the UK.
