In 2015 NSPCC launched their SHARE AWARE campaign which has encouraged thousands of conversations between parents and their children about online safety issues. Last year we also launched a major partnership with O2, enabling us to support more parents to help build their children’s digital resilience.
- O2 NSPCC Online Safety Helpline - providing personalised support for parents on privacy settings, new sites and apps and general advice. Call on 0808 8005002, also available through live chat.
- Net Aware – our popular guide to the 50 sites, apps and games used by young people. Net Aware has been awarded the Best Product for Parents at the recent Digital Safety Awards. It’s available as an app or parents can sign up for the newsletter for regular updates.
- Guru appointment – whether an O2 customer or not, you can book an in-store appointment with an O2 Guru to get advice and support on making family devices safe for children.
- Advice and guidance – our website has a wide range of information about online dangers and parental controls
NSPCC has also produced a guide to assist parents when talking with children about the dangers and legalities surrounding sexting, empowering them to say no to requests.
