Insafe is a European network constituted by 30 national Safer Internet Centres in EU member states and in Iceland, Norway and Russia. Every national Centre implements awareness and educational campaigns, runs a helpline, and works closely with youth to ensure an evidence-based, multi-stakeholder approach to creating a better internet. Insafe is about promoting safe, responsible use of the Internet and mobile devices to young people.
Under the framework of the European Commission’s Safer Internet Programme, Insafe and INHOPE work together to deliver a safer and better internet. The two networks promote safe, responsible use of the internet and mobile devices to children, young people and families as well as working to identify and remove illegal content online, across Europe and beyond.
Through a network of Safer Internet Centres (SICs), typically comprising an awareness centre, helpline, hotline and youth panel, children and young people, and their parents, carers and teachers, can access information, advice, support and resources, or indeed report any illegal content they encounter online.
