17 February 2023

Safeguarding Internet Day is celebrated around the world and in 2023 took place on Tuesday 7th February.  This year, it was based around the theme "Want to talk about it? Making space for conversations and life online".  In this blog, Elliot Crippen, Digital Enabler for Yorkshire North and East District, shares how digital safeguarding needs to be applied to create safe spaces for faith online and how this works in practice in the church.
