Youth leading the way: the BIK Youth panel and SIF YAG are getting ready for action

In the lead-up to this year's Safer Internet Forum (SIF) 2023, the involvement of young people is taking centre stage, ensuring that the event truly reflects voices of today's digitally connected youth. Two key youth-driven groups, the Better Internet for Kids (BIK) Youth Panel and the Safer Internet Forum Youth Advisory Group (SIF YAG), are working hard to shape the event. 

Latest helpline trends: Quarter 2, 2023

The Insafe network of helplines collects data about the types of calls received and this is analysed every three months in order to look at possible trends and emerging issues. Since April 2023, helplines have been using an updated set of categories to log contacts against. The new categories were agreed upon following extensive consultation and discussion with the helpline network. The work was led by a helpline working group who spent considerable time determining the changes that needed to be made. 

Empowering the next generation with digital skills

To kick off the school year that has just started, Better Internet for Kids (BIK) has decided to focus on empowering youth with the skills they need to safely navigate the digital world, and be able to recognise both the opportunities and the challenges it poses.
