Supporting Safer Internet Day 2019

Father supports child on iPad

Verizon Media is once again a proud sponsor of Safer Internet Day, where it will sponsor education packs sent to all UK schools supporting the national curriculum on PSHE ('Personal, Social, Health and Economic' education).

The educational packs aim to raise awareness of children's safety online, with this year's theme being 'together for a better internet' - with a special focus on the area of consent online. As a digital company and online services provider, we are committed to making the internet a safe place for younger generations.

Anna Watkins, UK Managing Director of Verizon Media, spoke on the importance of Safer Internet Day 2019: "The internet can unlock fantastic experiences and positive relationships when we know how to navigate it and use it successfully. Through our support for Safer Internet Day, we want to help young people to be informed and resilient internet users. We are proud to fund the education packs that are distributed to schools nationwide so teachers and pupils can get the right guidance to know how they can navigate the online world safely and respectfully."
