Social media and technology

The ever-changing and increasing presence of technology in our community creates a number of challenges and opportunities related to children and young people’s wellbeing.

Increasing the community’s understanding of technology and social media is vital if we are able to provide the support children and young people need to navigate safely and take advantage of this new environment.
