Darlington Internet Safety Partnership

Covid - 19

With families having to stay inside, technology will be used more to help pass the time. Whilst technology has its benefits, it can also be cause friction within a household.  DISP have lots of information in the Apps and Games Information, Parents and Carers and Useful Links sections of our website. We have also made a SURVIVAL GUIDE [word document] to help through this difficult time.
