Plugged in Switched off Barnardos Online Safety Programme

Barnardos Online Safety Programme – online safety webinar/event, Plugged in Switched off, is back this year on Wednesday 17th of May from 10-11.30am and the theme is ‘Gaming’. We will once again be streaming this on You Tube live. 

Supported by, this event is aimed at principals, parents and professionals working with children. It hopes to be practical, solution focused and to give an insight into the pros/cons of gaming and how it impacts on children

During the 90 minute webinar, we will hear insights from the Barnardos Online Safety Programme as well as from young people from the Webwise Youth Advisory Panel who will give their take on pros and cons of gaming.


The gaming industry (Roblox/PEGI)  will also be there to showcase their latest safety settings and we will also hear from our key note speaker, Richard Hogan (Psychotherapist and author of Parenting the Screenager). A lively panel discussion will finish off the event and it will be moderated by Anton Savage. Attached is your invite, if you want to share it around.


The event is free
