Why become a SID Star

Safer Internet Day is a short campaign with a big reach! Through our educational content created for schools, our social media campaign, SID events and media campaign we were able to reach 40% of 8-17s with Safer Internet Day messages for Safer Internet Day 2016.  That’s 2 in 5 young people in the UK who really benefited from the campaign!

But we couldn’t do it alone. Safer Internet Day’s success is down to the hundreds of organisations, schools and individuals who support the day and celebrities are a key part of this. 


Last year we had a huge range of celebrities get involved including sports stars and actors, pop stars and dance groups.  They supported the day by sharing messages on SIDTV, coming along to a Safer Internet Day event or helping to spread the word by joining the SID social media campaign.  What is great is that all of our SID Star’s really benefitted from taking part in the campaign by reaching new audiences across the UK!
