With 17 per cent of Europeans falling victim to identity theft every year, data protection and safe behaviour online are important issues. The aim of the SafeSurfing project was to develop activities and training materials for people with intellectual disabilities that support them in deciding which kind of information to share with others, so they can enjoy the benefits of the online world while keeping their personal data safe.

SafeSurfing was a project about the internet.
It taught people with intellectual disabilities
how to be safe when they go online.
We did this project between 2014 and 2016.
During this project, we:
- created videos that show how to protect
your personal information
when you go online
- created a training programme on how to be safe
when going online.
Our work brings the voice of people with intellectual disabilities and their families where decisions about their future are made.
This has always been incredibly important. It is even more so with the Covid pandemic drastic impact on their rights and lives.
Being visible and vocal on issues directly affecting millions of people requires your support.
