The UK Council for Internet Safety has created a resource for care experienced young people designed to support conversations around online safety.

Talking regularly about their digital life with a trusted adult is a key way to help keep children and young people safe online. This is particularly important for children who have had adverse childhood experiences.

The UKCIS Digital Passport provides structure and resources to support these conversations, for both the child and the carer. It includes a section for children to express their feelings, hopes and interests, and a section for foster carers and other professionals on how to talk about all things digital and why it is so important.

The UKCIS VUWG has produced an online hub to host the Digital Passport in various formats to help ensure it is as accessible as possible.
