26 May NSPCC #ShareAware Campaign
The NSPCC have recently launched a fantastic campaign to help parents talk to their kids about what they share online. The campaign #ShareAware first caught my attention on twitter as celebrities and TV personalities got involved encouraging people to visit the website and watch the videos. I shared the link on social media and emailed it to all of the community sports hubs, active schools and governing bodies I work with to play my part and help others be ‘share aware’.
The NSPCC website is full of handy videos and tips. I particularly like the ‘Family Agreement’ and the fact that they’ve teamed up with O2 to offer a free advice service where expert advice on social media settings and how to protect your kids online is available. The phone number is 0808 8005002.
Other useful tools for parents, teachers, coaches, volunteers and anyone else who works with kids and young adults are;
Click CEOP – Think U Know which offers a variety of information for different age ranges.
