Links and Resources

In the digital age, it is vital that parents and carers are aware of the websites and apps that their children are using. Social media apps, including Facebook, Instagram, Musical.ly, Snapchat and WhatsApp have a minimum age of 13, as set out in their terms and conditions. Children under the age of 13 should not be accessing these apps. The NSPCC website Net Aware has a list of many apps and gives information about the age restrictions for each one.
