Our helpful online safety guide – COVID-19 update
The Internet is a powerful and useful tool that provides access to a wealth of information and communication. Many people are using new services, apps or devices, such as webcams and tablets, to learn/work or socialise with at this time. It is particularly important to safeguard those that may be more vulnerable to abuse and neglect as others may seek to exploit disadvantages due to age, disability, illness or mental wellbeing.
Filtering through the mountain of safety advice and guidance available online can be overwhelming and confusing to even the most proficient internet user. To help, Access Community Trust has produced this brief document with the help of our Safeguarding team, with an aim of providing helpful basic guidance and tips for staying safe online. We will also share trusted links where further information can be found.
As an organisation, we ourselves are using video conferencing apps such as Zoom to stay safely connected to our customers and team. Tips on using this platform and the measures we have taken to keep you safe while communicating with our team are also outlined.
