Beacon extends the work you do, by putting a trusted cyber safety education tool into the hands of parents and caregivers ready to help at times when they need it the most.
We need your help!
This page is a collection of resources for individuals and organisations who work with families, young people and children to educate and support development of healthy and protective online behaviours.
Just as our Beacon app is bursting with credible information to support families, this page For Professionals is bursting with ready to go communication pieces to assist in making it easy for you to talk about Beacon in the work you do. From social media posts, to newsletter inserts, our toolkit is ready to help achieve our shared vision of keeping Australian kids safe online and to help parents feel empowered in a digital world.
In a rapidly changing world, parents and caregivers need a guide
The online world can change at a rapid pace. Competing messages and multiple concerns can contribute to parents and care givers becoming overwhelmed in a sea of information as they navigate supporting their child’s online behaviour and emerging digital behaviours. Just as parents and care givers play an important role in keeping children and young people safe online, you as an individual and organisation are an essential trusted messenger for informing parents and care givers about cyber safety.
When seeking answers, parents and caregivers value your knowledge, credibility and the relationship you have established with them to shine a light and guide them in a positive direction. It is the relationship and trust that parents and carers have with community organisations, health, education and care services like yours, that parents look to for certainty.
