Internet Matters

Internet Matters is an independent, not-for-profit organisation which aims to help parents keep their children safe online. The possibilities of this new connected world are exciting and infinite. The internet is the most important innovation of our time, if not all time. It makes it simple to connect, communicate, learn and share. We believe in maximising children’s potential online, while staying safe, and Internet Matters can help parents to address this important issue.

Learn About It Internet Matters offers information about many of the issues and technologies that children may come across in the online world. From sexting to cyberbullying, our recognised experts help to ensure we provide access to the most up to date and relevant information available for parents.

Talk About It Almost without exception, research tells us that the most successful way to keep our children safe online is to talk about it. Internet Matters has practical tips about how to start and continue those conversations with children. It’s never too late to talk about it.

Deal With It Internet Matters provides practical suggestions about how to take preventative measures, but also what to do if your family needs advice about a specific issue. Whether it’s finding out about filters to search safely or what to do about cyberbullying, Internet Matters aims to put you in touch with the best resources and support.
