Safety Net Campaign - March Update

The Safetynet Campaign for a FULL opt-in filter is as vital as ever.

There is encouraging progress in improving online safety:

This is a major achievement for which we thank God.

Baroness Howe's Online Safety Bill is still proceeding through Parliament. It is now hoped it will reach Committee Stage in the next session.

Public support has been crucial to this sea-change:

The final number who signed our Safetynet petition to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport was a magnificent 122,318 - our thanks to all of you!

However the battle is far from won.

Police figures show that more than 4,500 British children - some as young as five - committed sexual offences from 2009 - 2012. (And this does not include the 3 largest forces)

"We know that technology and easy access to sexual material is warping young people's views of what is 'normal' or acceptable behavior," commented Claire Lilley from The NSPCC.

Please continue to pray for the full automatic opt-in filter for all households.

Claire Perry MP"We've seen real progress this year in delivering the Government's plan to become a world-leader in online child safety. By the end of this year, providers of over 90% of the UK's public Wi-Fi should automatically filter adult content on their services, ISPs will provide much better family-friendly filters and mobile phones will have an even stronger adult content block to ensure safer browsing online. However, there is still more work to be done and I intend to work very closely with ISPs, charities and government officials to make sure we remain on course to provide a safer online environment for children." Claire Perry MP for Devizes

Sign the Petition

To protect children I call on the Government to force Internet Service Providers to make accessing pornography an adult only opt-in service.
