Safe Church Program

NEW

Online Safety for Every Family resource available 

The eSafety Commissioner has just released new resources to help parents and carers from all backgrounds support their children to stay safe online.

As part of eSafety’s work to support the National Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Child Sexual Abuse, ‘Online Safety for Every Family’ helps parents begin a conversation with their children about online safety and build the confidence to support more positive experiences online.

The package of animated videos and advice sheets addresses a range of common online parenting challenges including social media, gaming, online bullying and general online safety. Available in English, Simplified Chinese, Arabic, Vietnamese, Tamil and Dari, the materials can be accessed on the eSafety’s website here. 

Help spread the word 

Share these new resources with your networks. Below are 30-second versions of the videos in plain English.
