​The Cybersafety Help Button is a new Australian Government initiative, supported by the department, designed to keep children and families safe online. It is an online resource hub that provides instant 24 hour access to cybersafety help and information.

While the internet offers many benefits, there are also potential risks for children and teenagers such as cyberbullying, scams and fraud, offensive content and unwanted contact. The Cybersafety Help Button is a tool to help reduce these risks.

School staff and parents are encouraged to explore the new button and discuss its use with students. Students should also be encouraged to report any concerns to school staff for investigation and appropriate action. Child protection concerns must be reported through the appropriate school processes outlined in the department's Student Protection policy.
