Get involved with Safer Internet Day

Safer Internet Day (SID), coordinated by the UK Safer Internet Centre, sees hundreds of schools and organisations join together to raise awareness of online safety issues and run events and activities right across the UK.

Unite for a better internet #SID2017

This year, Safer Internet Day takes place on Tuesday 7th February, and as a proud supporter, we’d like to encourage you to spread the word and join the conversation to help create a better internet for all of us.

What we’re doing

Virgin Media is striving for a better internet by creating safe services for our customers and empowering them with the help, advice and tools they need to enjoy life online. You can learn more about our easy-to-use Internet Security Toolkit below.

What you can do

#SID2017 is a great day to focus on how you can help your child have a safe and fun experience online. Be open about what they get up to when they use the internet and be sure to help them to deal with any concerns or issues they may have. You’ll find lots of helpful information, advice and resources on the UK Safer Internet Centre’s website.
