E-Safety Training and Guidance

For Faith Leaders and Institutions

For all faiths across Europe

As faith institutions and out-of-school settings across Europe increasingly work online, it is essential that children, staff and volunteers are safeguarded from potentially harmful and inappropriate online materials. EFI’s E-Safety training addresses this topic, and is adaptable to all faiths and denominations.

The aim of the training is to promote online safety, ensuring faith leaders, community members and students are aware of the risks and how to mitigate these.
