Saferinternet IE AN-HL-HELP: Safer Internet Ireland

SaferInternetIE - SII - national awareness node, hotline and helpline for Ireland

The project consists of:

An awareness raising centre – to be carried out by the National Centre for Technology in Education (NCTE).
Its aim is to:
• educate and promote dialogue between children, teachers and parents on safe and appropriate use of the internet and new media,
• to ensure that they are aware of the benefits of the internet as well as its risks, informing of technological developments assisting safer internet use and promoting reporting of inappropriate content or activities.

A Hotline service – to be provided by the Internet Service Provider's Association of Ireland Ltd. (ISPAI) hotline.
Its aim is to:
• provide an avenue for members of the public to report suspected illegal content or activities found on the internet and then to pass the report, together with related technical information, to the police or INHOPE hotlines;
• to ensure the near zero record of illegal content being found to be hosted or distributed from within Ireland continues.

A Helpline – to be operated by the Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (ISPCC), who will provide a national freephone helpline where children can raise concerns about illegal and harmful content related to their use of online technologies.
