We acknowledge that many individuals refer to themselves by their clan, mob and or country. For the purposes of this website, we respectfully refer to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander throughout with reference to whole communities as Indigenous.

On this page you will find resources for parents and carers to keep our mob safe online.

Kids are growing up in two worlds, the real world and an online world. Just like we protect kids from dangers in the real world, it’s important to protect their safety in their online world too.

Many of our mob are unsure how to help keep their kids safe online. These resources are designed to educate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander parents and carers of children aged 5 – 18 about the importance of starting the chat with young people around online safety.

Visit Be Deadly Online to find out more about the big issues online, like bullying, reputation and respect for others.
