Safety Tips for Young People

 Keep your passwords private. Your online service will never ask for them, so neither should anyone else.

 Use only your member name and/or e-mail address when chatting or sending e-mail. Never give out personal information like your name, address, or phone number.

 Don’t share photos of yourself, your family, or your home with people you meet online.

 Always delete unknown e-mail attachments without opening them. They can contain destructive viruses.

 If a person writes something that is mean or makes you feel uncomfortable, don’t respond. Just log off and tell your parents, or guardian or a responsible adult, who can report it to your online service provider.

 Remember that nothing you write on the Web is completely private — including email. So be careful and think about what you type and who you tell. Not everyone is as nice, cute, and funny as they may sound online.

 Never make plans to meet an online “friend” in person.

About Credo Care

Credo Care was established in 2000 as the UK's first independent fostering agency specialising in the care of children with disabilities, complex medical needs and learning difficulties.

Our goals are to raise the standards of disability care for children, reduce the financial burden of long-term residential and hospice care on local authorities and to ensure that becoming a foster parent is a positive and rewarding experience for all of our carers.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.
