Our ‘Fostering in a Digital World’ app for smartphones by Ineque Safeguarding Group has been shortlisted for the Belfast Telegraph IT Awards ‘Mobile App of the Year’ 2019. We are among six other apps tipped for the top spot, with the winner being revealed at the awards event on 8th November in the Mac Theatre in Belfast.
We encourage all foster carers to download the app to become more comfortable and familiar with technology which helps to safeguard young people by having a better understanding of the digital world we live in. The app can help with understanding the dangers of online, and includes useful tools such as guidance on safe social media use.
The app is available to iOS and Android devices and is available to all foster carers across Northern Ireland. For more information and to download the app please click here.
