The UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS) unites over 100 organisations from the public and private sector working with the Government to deliver recommendations from Dr Tanya Byron’s report Safer Children in a Digital World.
The UK Government and the devolved administrations in Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland have accepted all Dr Byron’s recommendations, one of which was to set up a forum where stakeholders from across the internet safety spectrum would work together for the good of children and families. This has led to the establishment of the UK Council for Child Internet Safety.
Reporting directly to the Prime Minister, the Council will help to improve the regulation and education on internet use, tackling problems of online bullying, safer search features and violent video gamesAs one of the key recommendations of the Byron Review Action Plan, published by Children's Minister, Kevin Brennan, the Council is responsible for delivering on the key milestones of the Byron Report Safer Children in a Digital World.
