SafeSurfing on Safer Internet Day

Trinity House3 Ann MarieThe people we support at two of our residential services have taken part in Safer Internet Day on the 5th of February to learn about going online safely.

Staff at both River View in Darlington and Trinity House in Lockerbie have supported people to learn about internet safety by using the Mencap SafeSurfing presentations and worksheets.

At River View, Bev and Kevin enjoyed learning from the presentations. Bev said, “It was very useful. I now know why I need to log off my computer for safety.”

Robert and Ann Marie at Trinity House also both enjoyed taking part in the course, particularly the interactive worksheets that made up part of the training. They went through the pros and cons of Facebook and social media and how to protect their identity and personal information.

Ann Marie found the session particularly useful as she doesn’t have social media, but wanted to know more about it. She said, “I loved the session, but I don’t feel like I want to go on Facebook. At this moment I am happy to just play my games on my laptop.”

Robert was very interested in all the different topics, saying, “I enjoyed the session very much and would like to do more computer work.”

Everyone who took part was pleased to receive a certificate at the end saying that they had completed the SafeSurfing course.
