Are Your Children Safe Online? Acceleris Hosts Free Seminar for North Yorkshire Organisations
Published by CarysSamuels for Acceleris Marketing Communications in Communities and also in Housing
Almost 60 per cent of the UK population, over 300m people, have a Facebook account and 15.5m UK people have Twitter accounts. With 41 per cent of the UK’s seven to ten-year-olds able to access the internet from their own rooms and the increasing popularity of smartphones, the World Wide Web is more accessible to children than ever before.
But who’s really looking at our profiles and are online ‘friends’ really who they say they are? Could children be victims of cyber bullying, grooming or worse?
Acceleris has joined forces with North Yorkshire Police’s Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre -trained youth officer, Paul Stephenson, to host a free seminar for all North Yorkshire social housing professionals to identify the hidden dangers online.
This free seminar will highlight the risks youngsters may face online and cover how you can successfully engage using social media, maximising the tools at your disposal in a safe and managed way.
Seminar: Thursday 3rd May 2012
8.45am – 9.45am with networking and refreshments from 8.30am
Venue: Crown Hotel, Crown Place, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG1 2RZ
Places are limited, to confirm your attendance please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Ellie on 0845 4567 251.
