Helping children use vital tools, safely

Barney Echo LogoAn integral part of our lives, the Internet gives children access to information that can fuel their interests and support their education. Like with all tools however, children need to learn to use the Internet effectively, and above all, safely. Which is why we are delighted to announce our partnership with the Police Community Clubs of Great Britain through which we will be helping to keep children safe on the Internet.

Children are becoming more and more technically able in accessing the Internet using a variety of devices, from a younger and younger age. All interaction with our community can carry risks for young children and they can be ill equipped to deal with the particular dangers that present themselves on a virtual level.

To help address this very serious issue we are pleased to sponsor a number of local primary schools by providing educational resources that will enable teachers to run a program dealing with issues such as cyber bullying, inappropriate material, personal security, and social media.

The resources are part of the Barney & Echo series and are designed to help children at a young age make good decisions based upon sound educational advice.

I believe that the project has been the catalyst for some big changes in the way we operate and think. Your presence, support, enthusiasm and ability to engage the personnel involved has been integral to this.

With the support of the LI team, the Bars business unit has made great strides forward with some exceptional results. It has been gratifying to witness the confidence and capability of the people grow paralleling the rise in plant performance. I look forward with great optimism to the continuing journey and an ongoing partnership with LI Europe.
