Ariel is pleased to announce a new three year project funded by the National Lottery: Communities Fund. Our project will support young people to fulfill their potential by enabling them to explore the impacts social media is having on their lives and empowering them to take control of these impacts before they have significant negative effects. Creative workshops will focus on developing young people’s digital literacy skills and resilience online, building skills such as risk assessment or developing critical thinking.

Ariel’s SafeSkills resource is delivering important behavioural changes that are supporting schools to safeguard their pupils. Positive impacts can be seen from a recent evaluation of our grooming and sexual exploitation programme. In all of the schools involved in this trial, teachers reported that children were more open about their existing risk taking behaviour, especially the risks they take on line.
