Stay safe online

As road safety became an issue in the 1930s with the emergence of cars on the road, online safety has become an issue in recent years. 

With us all doing more and more things online, be it socialising, online shopping, renting a film or even applying for a mortgage, we have found some guidance to help people be aware of the simple steps it takes to stay safe whilst making the most of being online.

  • Age UK staying safe online - A great guide for anyone of any age who may be new to going online or wants to refresh their knowledge of online safety and security.
  • Abilitynet IT support at home - AbilityNet provides a range of support to help disabled people get the most from their home computers, tablets and smartphones.
