Use of new technology needs to be something we are building into our strategies to reach out and connect with young people. However, with every new release or update comes a new risk or element to be aware of. Never before has it been so important for young people and for those of us who work with young people to be kept safe online, and in every other form of e-communication.

The PDF download below is an example of an e-safety policy, which aims to share good practice that is in place across many schools work projects and youth work organisations in the UK. We are not suggesting that this is a complete guide for each and every project in need of an e-safety policy, however it aims to highlight many issues it is important to consider.
