Invitation to free Game Safe Warwickshire event for schools

Invitations are now open to the new Game Safe Warwickshire event. This FREE event is aimed at young people as well as parents and teachers to help learn about how to protect young people from potential harms of online gaming. The event will also look to talk about safeguarding and how to keep young people safe.

You will hear a talk from Lorin LaFave. Lorin is founder of The Breck Foundation, a charity that educates the digital generation to keep safer online. She campaigns for a safer internet and helps train police, educators, health practitioners, safeguarding leads, parents and pupils to ensure that young people are empowered to make safer choices for themselves online. She is a regular guest on the BBC, ITV, Sky, Channel 4 and Channel 5, as well as on various radio programmes. She also presents training videos and documentaries, spreading awareness to all who touch the lives of children.

There will also be an opportunity to talk to a number of partners from across Warwickshire about safeguarding, support available as well as positive opportunities locally for young people. This event is open to young people in Year 7 and 8 in Warwickshire schools, parents and teachers.
