Safer Internet DK SIC: Safer Internet Centre Denmark

The Danish Safer Internet centre will work with awareness raising activies with an understanding and respect of the rights of the users and the various safety measures and approaches necessary.

The Safer Internet Center Denmark consists of an  awareness centre run by the Danish Media Council for Children and Young People, a hotline run by Save the Children and a helpline run by Cyberhus. The partners each have long standing experience and expertise in their respective areas of work within the project, which will ensure maximum impact

The Danish  Media Council has acted as Awareness Centre in Denmark since 2004. It is established as the key resource and knowledge centre for children’s use of the internet and mobile. A strong network of national stakeholders, among others the Ministry of Education, support the Awareness Centre and ensures the dissemination of surveys, awareness tools, educational materials, information and advice targeted children & young people, parents and teachers.  The awareness centre maintains a strong focus on raising and communicating the voice of the children and young people as a basis for awareness raising activities toward all target groups.
 
Save the Children has since 1998 operated a hotline against child abuse images on the internet in Denmark. The hotline has a well-consolidated collaboration with the National Danish Police. Thus, the hotline represents a valid option for the public in regards to reporting child abuse material online. The hotline will continue to operate in the international framework of the network Inhope.
 
The Danish online counselling centre and online youth club Cyberhus is operating the helpline. Cyberhus is a well established counselling website for at-risk children and young people with currently 11.000 monthly unique users. Cyberhus runs an online chat counselling service and accessibility to a telephone helpline with a particular focus on handling requests related to unpleasant online experiences. Cyberhus whose core service is an anonymous and confidential chat counselling service for kids and teens was established in 2004.
