Streetwise delivers Internet Safety programmes to over 7,000 young people in both primary and secondary schools each year. The huge rise in the use of technology and smartphones has led to a significant increase in the risks faced by young people of all ages when online.
Streetwise recently launched Webwise, a comprehensive series of interactive internet safety sessions that focus on the latest trends in social media, mobile apps and online safety, aiming to inspire young people's confidence online.
Webwise also offers free parent and teacher training sessions, addressing how to best support and safeguard young people through their online experiences.
‘Webwise’ covers a variety of topics within internet safety; from the S.M.A.R.T. rules (Safe, Meeting, Accepting, Reliable, Tell), to gaming, cyber-bullying, social media and sexting. Streetwise facilitators are accredited to deliver Internet Safety workshops and the programmes are run in partnership with national organisations such as CEOP and Childnet International.
