We work with external experts, to gather feedback from our community when developing policies and resources to keep people safe online. Australian non-profit organisation, Orygen, has been a long standing member of our Safety Advisory Board, working together to ensure #chatsafe guidelines and resources are available in eight languages, supporting young people to talk safely online about suicide.
Building a safer online world
We want Australians to have a safe and positive experience online, and to connect and share their ideas with the world. To make this a reality, we build tools, products and resources to equip young people and adults alike, with the skills they need to thrive online and work in partnership with many Australian NGOs to support the wellbeing of the community.
Combatting online scams
We worked in partnership with IDCARE and Puppy Scam Awareness Australia to develop a ‘Scam Awareness Campaign’. The campaign provides simple, user-friendly tips to identify, avoid and report the seven most common types of online scams – investment, phishing, romance, ecommerce, pet, lottery and job scams.
A safe & strong LGBTQI+ community
We worked in partnership with Black Rainbow, Trans Pride Australia, ACON, Twenty10, and Minus18 to refresh the ‘Safe and Strong’ guide with new safety products and updated information from community organisations. The guide also features inspiration from local queer creators including Cub Sport Jeff Van Der Zandt, AJ Clementine and more.
This Digital Home
In partnership with the Alannah and Madeline Foundation, This Digital Home is a social research project that examines the changing aspect of technology for Australian families in staying connected, informed and healthy through social isolation. The project is finding ways to strengthen social cohesion amid families and the wider community, particularly as we all continue to adjust with the ‘new normal’ of social distancing.
Parent’s Guide to Instagram
Instagram is committed to ensuring it’s a safe place for everyone. We worked with Reach Out Australia to equip parents with the tools to have supported conversations with their children and understand some of the issues young people face and the tools and features to support their positive health and wellbeing online.
