The psychological impact on children
Our digital imprint
Supporting children, young people and parents/carers to make informed decisions
At our inaugural event in Lambton Castle, Durham our sponsors and exhibitors were able to network and connect with new audiences.
"It was not just another event. It was a deep dive into the profound impacts of digital realms of young people in an age where technology is intertwined with our daily lives, understanding its implications has never been more crucial.
The conference bravely ventured into some of the most challenging areas of discussion, from the heart-wrenching topics of suicide and self-harm, to the complexities of neurodiversity in the digital world.
These conversations, though tough, shed light on the pressing need to address the challenges faced by young individuals navigating the online world."
David Brown, If u care Share
"The speakers were phenomenal, the setting was glorious and the attention to detail was fantastic. A great day bringing together passionate people from all areas of digital safety and support for young people, definitely the start of some lifesaving, culture changing conversations. Proud to have been a small part of it all”
Mark Doherty, Orangebox Training
"The breadth of speakers, passion and topics addressed were enormous in terms of impact and for fuelling my personal fires. The opportunity to meet such a plethora of people, all of whom have a huge part to play in protecting young people from digital harms was of such gravity I felt a real ‘buzz’ to be there."
Oliver Mellor, Mind Of My Own
"What a fantastic day we have had. We have made some amazing contacts throughout the day and exchanged details to work together in the future. So very well organised with wonderful people and so much information from the speakers."
