Digital Wellbeing

On 22nd January, some of our Wessex foster carers attended Digital Wellbeing training, run by Dialogue Training. The training was very interesting and thought provoking, covering a range of issues which affect young people and their carers.

At the end of the training, carers were able to:

  • Identify the issues which might affect young people online
  • Identify particular areas of risk for young people and the factors which increase their vulnerability
  • Acknowledge that social media and the use of technology is now an integral part of young people’s lives today
  • Describe how to keep young people safe online and enable them to benefit from the use of technology
  • Know where to go for information and support
  • Learn from best practice in regards to professional guidance
  • Report concerns to the appropriate authority

Here are some useful links for children, carers and professionals for where to go for support or for the latest information on e-safety:
