The shared responsibility for the challenge of keeping children safe online means that any response has to be collaborative.
Over the last 20 years we have worked in partnership with various stakeholders including NGOs, industry, police, government, academics and policy makers, as well as young people themselves, their parents, teachers and others who support them, to create initiatives and services that have helped bring about positive change.
One of Childnet’s key strengths is our robust track record of independence. Our objectivity and expert voice are among the reasons why we have been a driving force behind developments such as the INHOPE forum, the creation of a new criminal off ence of grooming within the Sexual Off ences Act 2003, supporting the formation of CEOP and the integration of key e-safety messages in the computing curriculum. However none of these changes would have been achieved without a multi-stakeholder approach and neither would the majority of our work. That is why we are thankful to the many stakeholders who have helped support, strengthen and amplify Childnet’s work over the years.
