Safer Internet Centres raise awareness regarding online risks amongst children, parents, teachers and carers.

Safer Internet Centres are made up of awareness centres and helplines (organised in a pan-European network called Insafe) and Hotlines (organised in a global network called International Association of Internet Hotlines - INHOPE), in all the Member States, Iceland, Norway and Russia.

Awareness centres’ main activities are:

  • raising awareness related to potential risks young people may encounter online;
  • offer advice about staying safe online to young people and deal with issues such as cyberbullying and grooming, via the helplines;
  • develop information material;
  • organise events such as the Safer Internet Day, their biggest yearly international event;
  • organise information sessions for parents, children and teachers.

In addition, they set up youth panels to be consulted for the development of awareness raising activities, material and campaigns.
