We are delighted to say that Liverpool Football Club will once again be supporting Safer Internet Day 2022 by joining us and the UKSIC team for a virtual event taking place next week on Tuesday 8th February. The event will be streamed from 2pm on the UK Safer Internet Centre’s YouTube channel and will have sessions for primary and secondary schools.
The event is free to join and will bring together students from all across the UK to see the LFC team and UKSIC talk about this year’s theme of ‘All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online.’
Members from the LFC team, including the team mascot, Mighty Red will be making guest appearances and those who are watching the event will be in with a chance of winning some special prizes. All the information to find out how you can get involved will be presented on the day!
Forbes Duff, senior manager, CSR at Liverpool FC, said:
We have been working together with UK Safer Internet Centre for seven years now, providing engaging events for children and young people on the importance of staying safe and happy online.
Highlighting the ever-present risks of the internet alongside its benefits is so important especially in today’s technological world when young people spend long periods of time online for education and entertainment.
This is the second year our joint event has been delivered virtually, and we are hoping it will be as successful as last year, which engaged with more than 6000 attendees
Will Gardner OBE, director at UK Safer Internet Centre, added:
‘We are so happy to have the fantastic support of Liverpool FC this Safer Internet Day – this will really help us in our goal to spread the word about the importance of online safety this year.
We can’t wait to celebrate the day with Liverpool and explore our themes around respect and relationships online, particularly when playing games online or using interactive services. With Liverpool FC, we have the power to engage young people everywhere and this will really help as we look to support young people when they are playing online
