Online Safety


Enfield Council have a community help point scheme (CHiPS) to provide a network of ‘safe havens’ across the borough, where young and vulnerable people who are lost, at risk or feeling vulnerable can go in and ask for help or assistance from the community. There are around 200 community help points around Enfield where staff have offered to provide a safe haven for those in need of support. Staff at the help points can make a phone call to get you or your child help, allow you to stay in the premises until help arrives or until a risk has passed, call the police if you are the victim of a crime or call a member of your family or care team if you need more help. Please talk to your child about this scheme and look out for the CHiPS blue logo so that they know where to go in an emergency.

Please see below for more information.


Below are  four simple steps you can follow to make talking about online safety with your child a breeze! 

1. Talk to your child regularly about what they’re doing online and how to stay safe. Let them know they can come to you or another trusted adult if they’re feeling worried or upset by anything they have seen. 

2. Explore your child’s online activities together. Understand why they like playing certain games and make sure they know what they can do to keep themselves safe.

3. Agree your own rules as a family when using sites, apps and games. 

4. Manage your technology and use the settings available to keep your child safe.
