As highlighted in the Online Harms White Paper, published 8 April, the Government will develop a new Online Media Literacy Strategy. This strategy will ensure a coordinated and strategic approach to online media literacy education and awareness for children, young people and adults.

Government is already working with trusted partners to raise awareness of the range of advice on offer to help parents. This includes guidance from many organisations such as Parent Info, Internet Matters, and the UK Safer Internet Centre. Tech companies such as Google, Twitter, Vodafone, O2/ Telefonica, and Facebook also host safety information on their websites, and run projects and initiatives around online safety and parental controls.
