Cybersafe Launches Digital Wellbeing and Online Harm Prevention Project 2022-2023
On Safer Internet Day 2022, Cybersafe is delighted to announce the launch of a new project in Aberdeen, in partnership with Aberdeen City Council and funded by the Scottish Government's Delivering Equally Safe Fund.
The Digital Wellbeing and Online Harm Prevention Project will run for almost 2 years until the end of October 2023. The project will provide direct support for children, families and schools from across two Aberdeen ASGs - Northfield and St Machar, and the learning from the project will provide indirect support for many more schools, parents and families across Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Moray, and the rest of Scotland.
One of the priorities of the Delivering Equally Safe Fund is "intervening early and effectively to prevent violence and maximising the safety and wellbeing of women, children and young people" and this will be the focus of Cybersafe's work throughout the project - supporting the community to maximise the safety of children and young people in their online spaces.
Cybersafe Director, Annabel Turner, said "we are delighted to have the opportunity to provide this targeted support model in Aberdeen, with the support of the Council and local schools. Safer Internet Day 2022 is focussed on respect in online relationships which will be one of the themes of our work throughout the project - helping schools and families to ensure all children and young people are respected online."
