Tips on how to stay safe online during the COVID-19 pandemic

Culturally and linguistically diverse

Nearly one in four Australians speak a language other than English at home and Australians identify with more than three hundred different ancestries.

People from culturally and linguistically diverse communities have a broad range of digital literacy skills. Young people are often highly digitally connected, but older people and those with lower levels of English often face a ‘digital divide’. This means they can miss out on the features and benefits that others access online. Some people from culturally and linguistically diverse communities also experience higher levels of online abuse.

eSafety undertakes research, consultation and community engagement to understand the online risks and identify the needs of people from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds.
