The Bromley Safer Schools App is now available to the children's workforce in Bromley and it costs nothing to download to provide access to advice, guidance and CPD accredited training, with a specific focus on making children and young people safer in the online world.

In these unprecedented times, we know everyone is spending more time at home and using social media to ensure that physical distancing does not become social isolation. The positive power of technology will help keep our community digitally connected but we also know that more time spent online and in isolation by our children can lead to greater levels of risk.

The significance of this risk should not be underestimated, and neither should the need for us to accelerate our response to support our community at this time.
