Safer Internet BG SIC: Safenet.bg: Completing set-up of an integrated national Safer Internet Centre by establishing a Helpline

The Safer Iinternet Centre will run a hotline, awareness centre and helpline and will enhance the visibility and overall impact of all Internet safety actions implemented in Bulgaria.

The current project proposes to complete the establishment of an integrated Safer Internet Centre in Bulgaria by adding a Helpline to the national Hotline and Awareness node thus combining the three necessary approaches in addressing children Internet safety issues – providing users with a tool to report incidences of illegal and harmful content, contact and conduct; actions to raise awareness and educate users (with a focus on children, parents and teachers); and providing professional consultations and support to children and parents.

The project builds upon the successful implementation of a national Safer Internet Hotline project running over the period July 2005 – January 2008 and Setting up combined SAFEr InterNET node in Bulgaria from June 2009 till May 2010. The Internet safety of children is a relatively new concept to Bulgaria and the general level of awareness is still quite low.

The integration of hotline, awareness node and helpline into a single Safer Internet Centre will enhance the visibility and overall impact of all Internet safety actions implemented in Bulgaria. It will contribute to a stronger public perception of the various actions and initiatives, their closer coordination and more coherent nature. In this way the three components would mutually reinforce the efficiency of their efforts and the impact of their activities.

The Bulgarian Safer Internet Centre will be operated by a consortium of three partners under the overall co-ordination of ARC Fund, which will continue its function as national Hotline operator and will additionally supervise the other two components activities. The other partners will bring in specialist expertise (in child care, education, public relations) necessary for fulfilling the broader mission of an integrated Safer Internet Centre.
