Trusted eSafety Provider program

The Trusted eSafety Provider Program is designed to give schools confidence that the external online safety provider they engage meets eSafety’s online safety education standards.

Trusted eSafety Providers are endorsed by eSafety only after demonstrating their capability, experience and evidence-based online safety content. They are also required to comply with relevant safeguards for working with children.

These providers are part of a collaborative community of practice, sharing the latest research and best practice approaches to online safety education.

How to find a Trusted eSafety Provider

If you are looking for an online safety education provider, use the filters on our Trusted eSafety Provider list to find those best suited to your needs.

To help you with your selection, the eSafety Toolkit for Schools provides tips on engaging external online safety providers.

PLEASE NOTE: Some Trusted eSafety Providers also deliver content and services unrelated to online safety, which eSafety does not endorse in any way. eSafety also does not endorse the partners or sponsors of Trusted eSafety Providers.
