How to Get Involved with Safer Internet Day 2024

As we are less than three weeks away from Safer Internet Day (February 6th, 2024), there’s still plenty of time to get involved if you haven’t already done so. Last year, over 5,000 organisations registered their support for this iconic day and with each year, we hope to smash more and more records.

One of the simplest yet impactful ways to contribute is to register as a Safer Internet Day supporter. By submitting your details and outlining your plans for the day, you not only join a nationwide network of supporters but also earn a certificate to proudly display in your setting. This visible commitment underscores the collective effort to foster a safer digital space within your communities.
