NSPCC: Online safety


Children and young people spend a lot of time online – it can be a great way for them to socialise, explore and have fun. But children do also face risks like cyberbullying or seeing content that's inappropriate.

NSPCC have teamed up with O2  to give you everything you need to know about keeping children safe online.

Whether you're unsure about what happens online or are up to speed with new technology, it's important that you talk to your child about staying safe.

It may feel daunting, but you don't need to be an expert on the internet. Understanding what children do online and the risks they face will help you keep your child safe online.

Payroll deduction arrangement

Save straight from your pay with an online Credit Union account.  You decide how much you want to save and this means that when you receive your payslip, the chosen amount would have already been deducted and passed on to the credit union towards your savings or loan, before your salary hits your bank account.
As soon as you become a member of one of the Joining Forces credit unions you will also have access to a range of affordable and ethical loans. You can manage your savings and loans online.
