ySafe was founded in response to growing concerns amongst parents and school communities regarding children’s online activities, and the increasing prominence of technology-related developmental and behavioural issues. ySafe's approach has also been one of a pro-technology ethos, uniquely focussing on the social & emotional components of cyber safety and online behaviours.
Originally founded by psychologists, the need was identified for a multidisciplinary approach to cyber safety education and management. With that, our team expanded to include clinical psychologists, ex-police officers and teachers who are leaders in the field of cyber safety and social media. Our combined experience in child development, research, policing, and classroom contexts has provided us with a unique insight into the challenges and opportunities that participating in a digital environment presents to students, parents, and schools.
