South West Grid for Learning is lead partner of the UK Safer Internet Centre (UKIC), a partnership of three leading UK charities with Childnet International and the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF). Co-funded by the European Commission’s Connecting Europe Facility, UKSIC’s mission is to promote the safe and responsible use of technology for young people. As UKSIC embarks on its fifth phase of co-funding from the European Commission, we look back at the achievements of the Centre over the last thirty months in our end-of-phase report.

The Centre has three main pillars, an awareness centre, a hotline and a helpline. Together, these functions serve to support young people, parents and professionals in the UK and around the world. The report highlights the progress and achievements that the Centre has made in making the internet a better and safer place for all.
