Keeping children safe on the internet

If you have concerns about how safe your children are when they use the internet, pop along to the Rivergate Mall in Irvine this Tuesday (February 11) between 9:00am and 3:00pm.

North Ayrshire Child Protection will have experts on hand to give advice on keeping young people safe while they surf the web. Parents are encouraged to take along any phones, ipads, tablets and laptops used by family members.

Taking part in the event will be Police Scotland, offering advice on mobile phone security; O2, Vodafone, Three and EE who will show how to use mobile phone safety settings; NAC Community Learning and Development, focussing on social networking and how to make it a safe experience; NAC Education and Skills on tablet and ipad settings; and the Child Protection Committee offering general advice and showing videos from the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre.

The stall will be at the entrance to the mall nearest to the Asda supermarket.
