We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the esteemed judges and the Cyber and Fraud Centre - Scotland for this esteemed acknowledgment. The anticipation is palpable as we eagerly await the grand celebration on the awards night, filled with excitement and anticipation.


The journey to this remarkable achievement has been nothing short of transformative. Cybersafe Scotland's flagship initiative, Respected and Safe Online, has emerged as a beacon of hope, providing essential support to over 5,000 families residing in areas of multiple deprivation. Additionally, the programme has empowered more than 800 children and young adults annually, aiding them in navigating through the complexities of online abuse, exploitation, and harassment.


This milestone stands as a testament to the collaborative efforts and unwavering support received from Aberdeen City Council and the Scottish Government through the Delivering Equally Safe initiative. Their partnership has been instrumental in laying the groundwork for the programme's success and impact.


However, at the heart of this achievement lies the voices of the courageous children and young people who have bravely shared their stories and experiences. Their resilience and willingness to speak out have fuelled Cybersafe Scotland's mission and underscored the urgency of prioritising online safety for all.


To those who have championed our cause and stood alongside us on this journey, we extend our sincerest appreciation. Your unwavering support has been the driving force behind our efforts, propelling us toward our shared vision of a safer digital landscape for all.


As we reflect on this momentous occasion, we are reminded of the profound responsibility entrusted upon us. It is our fervent hope that by amplifying the voices of those we serve, we can instigate meaningful change and foster a safer online environment not only in Scotland but across the globe.


In the words of Annabel Turner, Cybersafe Scotland Director;

"I'm so grateful to everyone who has supported us... but most of all to the amazing children and young people who have worked with us and shared their stories with us and especially to the children from our support groups. I hope having the privilege of sharing your voices will change things for other children in Scotland and across the World."

As we embark on the next chapter of our journey, we remain steadfast in our commitment to safeguarding the digital well-being of all individuals, ensuring that every voice is heard and every story matters.


Stay tuned as we continue to champion digital safety and make a lasting impact in the realm of online security. Together, let us forge ahead towards a safer and more inclusive digital future.
