Since the establishment of SK SIC in 2007, the consortium includes two stable non-profit organisations (eSlovensko Bratislava, SC UNICEF/LDI) supported in time alternately by the Ministry of Culture, the Ministry of Interior and, in the last period, by the Ministry of Education of Slovak Republic (MESR SR).
Besides this, SK SIC involves all key and strategic stakeholders, public organisations as well as other ministries (aside from the previously mentioned ones, the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Justice, and the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Family). The emphasis given on strengthening the collaboration with the municipalities that are the founders and umbrella organisations above elementary schools is the key feature within the national support, while SK SIC actively collaborates with higher territorial units that are founders of secondary schools. This way there is guaranteed a maximum impact in terms of the dissemination of SK SIC tools and activities organised for children and youth, but also for teachers and so on.
The most relevant key organisations actively contributing to SK SIC activities with dedicated representatives are participating in a national Advisory Board (AB) bringing together 17 public organisations (state/municipalities), non-profit (NGOs etc.) and private (industry) stakeholders to ensure effective co-operation on awareness-raising activities, the work of the helpline, hotline and also the youth platform and youth participation.
The Advisory Board acts as the main project decision-making structure and channel of communication among involved stakeholders active in the field and contributing to the SK SIC operation. Within the national cooperation, SK SIC involves further industry organisations, major communication service providers and ISP associations, significant non-governmental organisations and networks dealing with childcare, representatives of university researchers into children's use of new media, representatives of teachers and parents, other key NGOs and networks relevant in the field, government agencies and networks, law-enforcement agencies, representatives of the youth platform and other youth organisations/networks, municipalities, and so on. In total, this means the involvement of an additional 20 organisations and 86 municipalities.
