At National Online Safety, we provide multi-award-winning online safety education for the whole school community. It’s our mission to make the internet a safer place for children. We believe that when children go online to learn, communicate or play, they should be able to do so safely. That’s why we provide schools all over the world with the knowledge they need in order to tackle new and evolving online risks.
Online Hate Crime
One of the most distasteful aspects of the internet is that it gives a voice to individuals or groups spreading hate speech. There is, unfortunately, no sign of this issue abating in the near future - so it's important that children and young people are educated on the subject and have built up a degree of resilience to malicious online opinions. Our short explainer video will quickly give you the essentials.
What is online hate?
Online hate is any form of communication that takes place online with the purpose of hurting someone else based on an aspect of their identity.
It can include discriminating against someone based on their race, religion, disability, gender, and sexual orientation.
