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

Frontline workers and support providers

Frontline workers and support providers have an important role to play in keeping Australians safer online. 

Working together to combat online harms

In our changing digital landscape, understanding the use of technology and its impact on both online and offline behaviour is essential to responsive and effective care.

eSafety provides resources and training for those who work directly to support many of the people who are most at risk of online harms, especially children and young people. 

We have tailored advice for out-of-home carers.

We also provide training for mental health and social workers.

Online safety presentations

All eSafety presentations are delivered by our expert education and training team. The sessions are free and run for one to two hours.

eSafety training for social workers, counsellors, psychologists, youth workers and other mental health carers aims to help develop digital intelligence, responsibility and resilience in young people.
