Young people in Hull launch Love Staying Safe Online

Love Staying Safe Online launches this week, with young people sharing their top tips for safety online.

The online campaign is a series of short sound bites, filmed by young people from their homes, with each film sharing a top tip for staying safe while using the internet, emails and social media.

The first of 10 films is released today by Gabriela Surdyk, Hull’s Young Mayor. The other films will be released over the next few weeks.

Love Staying Safe Online is part of the wider Love Staying Safe initiative from the manifesto of Hull’s Young Mayor and funded by the Safer Hull Partnership and the Police and Crime Commissioner.

Gabriela said: “My manifesto was the reason for me being chosen for the role of Young Mayor. I would like to support young people in feeling safe online, outside and around people, while also supporting them with their social presence.”

To find out more about the work of the Young Mayor or find out how to get involved, email the Voice and Influence team at [email protected] or visit Hull Young Peoples’ Voice on Facebook or @hull_voice on Twitter.

The NSPCC and UK Safer Internet Safety have a range of resources for children, young people and families, including advice about setting up parental controls and talking to children about staying safe online.
