Childnet International

Childnet International is a registered charity set up in 1995 with the mission to work in partnership with others around the world to “help make the Internet a great and safe place for children.”

The vision of the organisation is to ensure that all those involved in developing, producing, controlling, using and regulating international telecommunications (current and future), recognise and implement policies and programmes which prioritise the rights of children so that their interests are both promoted and protected.

Childnet works in 3 main areas of Access, Awareness, Protection and Policy.

Access and promoting quality content

Helping children and young people to use the net constructively, showcase quality content and enable others to use our resources and develop new projects.

Awareness and advice

Helping children and young people acquire new “net literacy” skills and giving advice to industry, organisations, parents, teachers and carers about Internet and mobile safety.

Protection and policy

Working with others to help protect children from being exploited in the online environments provided by new technologies as well as seeking to initiate and respond to policy changes.
