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.
The UK Government have also published new guidance on how to stay safe online during Covid-19 [external link]
