Our researchers are working to empower children to use technology more positively, to prevent problems and harms from arising.

A three-year partnership between Telethon Kids and Bankwest has led to the development of Beacon, a personalised, evidence-based cyber safety app. 

Beacon is designed specifically for parents as an individually tailored one-stop-shop source of reliable, trustworthy information about digital risks and threats facing kids such as online grooming, cyber bullying and stalking. It personalises content for parents with alerts to the latest cutting-edge information and strategies, tailored to match family profiles based on children’s ages, areas of interest and devices.
