About National Online Safety
We are an independent online safety training provider founded by three fathers on a mission to keep children safe online. We believe that through our engaging Online Safety training and resources for school staff, parents and children, we can make a difference.
It is our mission to educate and empower trusted adults with the information they need to engage in meaningful dialogue between children and young people about the online world, their online activities and the ever-evolving risks that they are exposed to. We focus on both general online safety risks and platform specific risks to provide adults with easy to follow information which enables conversations between adults and children.
