Safety Net: online safety workshop
FREE training for groups

What can I expect from the training?

Safety Net is an interactive session that goes beyond the usual ‘how to be safe online’ and offers a hands on session – you can bring your phone/laptop/tablet if you wish. Fatima and Vaqar from Dundee International Women’s Centre will help you look at:

• how to keep you/your family/your community group safe online
• why some people are more vulnerable online
• how online predators search for those to be ‘groomed’
• what is radicalisation – why are some people vulnerable to radicalisation?

Fatima and Vaqar have facilitated ‘Safety Net’ across Scotland and are skilled at working with adults and young people from a variety of backgrounds, cultures and religions to explore the common themes of social media usage and online vulnerability.


2 hour workshop combining presentations, short videos and group activities plus lots of opportunities for open and interesting discussions. Talk to us about what your group needs beforehand.
