A LOCAL radio station has partnered up with the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) to promote online safety.

Community station Sunny Govan is running a series of programmes called Kids Safety Net, to highlight the importance of using the internet responsibly.

Starting next week, episodes will air every Tuesday at 4.15pm for the next five weeks and will promote the NSPCC's free online safety group workshops for parents and carers.

They are designed to help understand why young people go online and give them resources to help keep their children safe. The workshops can be booked to be held at schools, community groups or organisations.

Steg Gilfoyle, Station Co-founder and Manager of Sunny Govan Community Radio, said: “We are delighted to be able to work with NSPCC Scotland and highlight the vital work it does to help keep children safe.

“We hope that by giving some airtime to an important issue such as online safety will help parents and carers to understand what their children face online daily and spread the word on how the NSPCC’s workshops can help them and others.”

Gail Sayles, Local Campaigns Manager for NSPCC Scotland, said: “Our online safety workshops are an invaluable free resource for parents and carers, informing them about the challenges and risks that their children may face online and giving them the tools to help keep them safe.

“We would like to thank Sunny Govan Community Radio for giving us their airtime to highlight these important workshops and the support the NSPCC can offer parents and carers to help keep children safe in their online worlds.”
