Stay safe at home. Stay safe online.

Stay Safe at Home Video.

COVID-19 and related isolation measures have led to children spending more time socialising, learning and playing online. End Violence has teamed up with our partners in the technology industry, including Microsoft, Facebook, Google, Twitter, Roblox and Snapchat, to develop a new campaign to help keep children safe in this rapidly changing environment.

By collaborating with the governments of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States, these companies have developed a series of targeted public service announcements to help parents, caregivers and children themselves watch out for risks online, and to stay safe at home – and stay safe online – during these challenging times. 

Below, you will find five practical steps and resources to help you do just that, including: talk with children about online risks, stay involved in their digital world, know who they're connecting with online, use privacy and security settings, and block and report people who make them feel uncomfortable.
