Staying Safe on Social Media


Technology has become very sophisticated in the last few years and staying safe on social media can be difficult if you don’t know what you’re doing. Social Media (Facebook and the million other trends!) has become a huge part of young people's life. We have therefore designed this workshop to give you the ins and outs to make sure your child is staying safe on social media.
