How can you protect students if you didn’t even know there was a risk?

Digital safeguarding is a pandora’s box full of the inevitable, the unexpected and the what-ifs – all set against a backdrop of a constantly changing technological and contextual safeguarding landscape. 

We support DSLs to navigate this complex and ever-changing landscape. One of the ways we do this is by helping DSLs to understand how digital safeguarding risks manifest themselves in ways they probably haven’t thought of – but are growing in prevalence every single day. And then what steps to take to reduce the risk of these things happening to their students.
