Safer Internet LV SIC - Latvian Safer Internet Centre

Latvian Safer Internet Centre is the only body in the Latvian society dedicated to the awareness raising of internet safety issues in society and the only body ensuring society the possibility to report illegal content on the internet to project’s hotline and helpline.

Over the past Project implementation periods Project has gained good recognition in society and among governmental and industry bodies as a trusted, valuable and needed Project. In September 2009 project implementation from a governmental institution was given over to nongovernmental institution, however the high Project implementation and organizational standards has remained at the same level and will be continuously sustained for the future Project implementation period.

Project goals comply with the goals set out by the Safer Internet Programme – to raise awareness and educate society on the safer use of internet, ensure hotline and helpline. In addition to these goals Latvian Safer Internet Centre has set a goal to serve the society as a leading expert regarding internet safety issues and ensure the excellent quality of all the services provided to the society.

Project consortium consists of two bodies – Latvian Internet Association (LIA), a nongovernmental institution, responsible for awareness and hotline activities and The State Inspectorate for Protection of Children's Rights (Inspectorate), a governmental institution, responsible for helpline activities. Project has a strong support from relevant stakeholders – Law Enforcement, Government, NGOs and Industry.

There are 3 indicated target groups of the Project – children and youngsters, their parents/caretakers and teachers/educators. In order to reach children, youngsters and teachers better, the project has set up a Youth Panel and a Teachers Panel. In cooperation with the panels it is planned to develop materials aimed specifically to the target groups. Along with the awareness activities towards different target groups, the project is also ensuring awareness of hotline and helpline activities. Specific goals are set for the target group – Russian speaking children and educators in Latvia.
