Safer Internet Day : Tuesday 5th February, 2019.

Safer Internet Day is celebrated globally in February each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people and inspire a national conversation. Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people. Globally, Safer Internet Day is celebrated in over a hundred countries, coordinated by the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, and national Safer Internet Centres across Europe. The day offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community. It calls upon young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers, and wider, to join together in helping to create a better internet. Get involved to play your part!

Behind closed doors: What police and charity say about Norfolk’s sex industry

A boom in high-end escort websites is painting a deceptively glamorous picture of the sex trade and encouraging more young people in into the industry, a Norfolk charity warns today.

Foodbank

"On Monday afternoon we had a visit from a representative from the Foodbank. Hannah comprehensively explained the referral process, the relationship between the various Foodbanks across Norwich and Norfolk, and the Trussell Trust's nationwide partnership with First Bus which provides a vital service for those who are in crisis and find themselves without access to transport. We now have a better understanding of the service our clients will receive when they access the Foodbank, and were able to provide feedback about our clients' experiences which will hopefully contribute to their ongoing evaluation of best practise." Jess Rolfe, Young Women's Outreach Worker

Universal Credit session with the Department of Work and Pensions

"This morning we had a session with Ian from DWP, who spent an hour giving us a flavour of Universal Credit, how the roll-out of Universal Credit across Norwich/Norfolk might look, and how we as a service could provide support to people seeking to claim Universal Credit. It was very useful to have a face-to-face chat with someone so experienced in the processes of Universal Credit and to get some of our questions answered so that we can provide the best support possible." Abbie Haines, Young Women's Outreach Worker
