A free online safety guide on how to Brighten Someone's Day Online.

Living a good digital life doesn’t only mean avoiding the bad stuff like online trolls, scam adverts or gory video games. Sometimes it’s about celebrating the good things: how the internet has the power, for example, to help people improve each other’s day with a kind word, a supportive comment or a well-timed meme. Comic Relief 2022 has the theme of ‘You’ – proposing that these small acts of kindness, if performed by enough people, can make a massive difference.

In support of this year’s Red Nose Day, we’ve produced a special #WakeUpWednesday guide with some suggestions on how we can all bring a smile to someone’s face by being more positive online - including video calling, posting a kind comment and sharing a feelgood playlist.
