The Safeguarding Board for Northern Ireland (SBNI) is delighted that the Health Minister Robin Swann has officially launched the new Online Safety Hub for young people, carers and professionals. The Hub was developed in partnership with Ineqe Safeguarding Group, and delivered as part of the NI Executive’s Keeping Children and Young People Safe: An Online Safety Strategy. It is split into two sections, one for adults and one for young people and brings together expert advice and resources from a range of member and partner organisations so that audiences can easily access education and support all in one central place.
