Many people with intellectual disabilities
use the internet and social media.

Normally, they don’t have problems.
But people with intellectual disabilities
experience cyber crime
more than other people.

Cyber crime is when some does something bad
using a computer and the internet.

This can mean:

  • steal data from you
  • show you things that you don’t want to see
  • make you feel very bad about yourself
  • convince you to give them your address or your money.

Be.safe is a project
of Inclusion Europe and other organisations.

It is about cyber crime
against people with intellectual disabilities.

Inclusion Europe and the other organisations met in
North Macedonia.

They talked about doing these things:

  • write an an easy-to-read document
    to support people with intellectual disabilities
    who want to go to police
  • develop a tool to make it easier for police
    and people with intellectual disabilities
    to talk to each other.

This new tool will be created by a Polish company.

There will be another meeting in Poland soon.

At the meeting, some people with intellectual disabilities
will be able to get to know the tool.
